ADI is Israel’s most comprehensive provider of residential care for individuals with severe disabilities, the leader of the national rehabilitation movement, and an international advocate for disability inclusion, equity and access. While empowering hundreds of Israel’s most vulnerable citizens – children, adolescents and adults – to advance well beyond their initial prognoses and live happy, dignified, and meaningful lives, ADI is also establishing fully inclusive communities and laying the groundwork for the provision of the highest-level rehabilitative care for all.
ADI Jerusalem (formerly ALEH Jerusalem) was founded in 1997 to provide dozens of children and young adults with multiple disabilities and complex medical conditions with the highest-level medical and rehabilitative care and the educational, vocational and social opportunities needed to reach their fullest potentials.
At ADI Jerusalem, we believe that every individual has the right to live a happy, dignified, and meaningful life, and should be afforded every opportunity to realize his or her greatest potential. This philosophy guides us when developing and implementing all programming and events at ADI Jerusalem, and every activity is professionally evaluated to ensure that they advance personal growth and promote greater independence and heightened self-esteem.
The ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitation Village (formerly ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran) was named in memory of Eran Almog, the late son of Didi and Major General (Res.) Doron Almog. Fueled by his love for Eran, who was born with severe autism and intellectual disabilities, Doron Almog guided the creation of an expansive residential and rehabilitative complex in Israel’s south that has become a home and family for more than 150 children and young adults with severe disabilities and complex medical conditions, and provides a host of rehabilitative solutions for individuals from all backgrounds and levels of need.
ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran provides a wide range of services, including residential care for people with multiple disabilities and complex medical conditions, an intensive care hospital wing for babies and adults, a para-medical center, hydrotherapy pool, special education school, green care farm, and a therapeutic horse stable and petting zoo.
As chairman of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, Doron Almog continues to lead and guide the village’s progress and advancement. As one of the founders of this unparalleled rehabilitative village and a recipient of the 2016 Israel Prize for lifetime achievement and contributions to society and the state, Doron stands as a symbol of disability care and inclusion.
Eran Almog, the late son of Didi and Major General (Res.) Doron Almog,
was one of the first residents of the ADI Negev rehabilitation village, an inclusive community where individuals with disabilities live, learn and play side by side with their non-disabled peers. Eran lived at the village for one year before passing away in 2007 at the age of 23.
