The Negev Workshop – ADI Ofakim, our employment and vocational therapy center in the south, is proud to announce the opening of a new café, located on the premises.
The unique café, staffed by people with disabilities, seeks to help employees gain and maintain the fine points of social normalization and employment etiquette that will enable them to move forward with self-confidence and integrate into the open job market.
The café is open to customers every Monday, under the heading “Meaningful Mondays,” and offers a wide range of salads, pastas and desserts at reasonable prices. Residents of Ofakim and surrounding towns are invited to visit the café, enjoy the food and support The Negev Workshop and its employees.
“Opening of the community café is an important step in the full integration of individuals with disabilities within our community,” said Ro’i Rappaport, the director of the center. “Among the many workshops offered at the center, employment at the café is yet another area that will enhance personal development and enable our workers to feel that they are an integral part of the work force. I call on all area residents to do their part and visit Ofakim’s first community café.”
