Group Homes – AKIM Israel has built and currently operates 15 group homes that provide supervised accommodation for 470 moderately to severely intellectually and developmentally disabled persons. This is their home; it is the place where they acquire basic skills and confidence, so they can function in mainstream Israeli society.

Among the 15 group homes operated by AKIM Israel, 3 are operated specifically to serve the senior disabled population. Individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities live longer due to improved health care and social services. These older adults have unique and challenging needs, particularly those people over the age of 40, who suffer from a marked deterioration of functioning. These individuals need a facility geared toward their special needs.

Apartments – As part of AKIM Israel’s desire to reach a full inclusion and participation, including residential facilities, in the community, AKIM maintains and operates 33 community-based apartments, throughout Israel, housing 4-6 residents each; all apartments are located within residential areas. These apartments are targeted to those people who can live independently, with minor supervision.

30 additional apartments are “under contract”, and will be populated soon by several hundreds of persons with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

It is part of the inclusion vision of AKIM Israel that the developmental and intellectual disabled persons be integrated in the community by leading their lives in community-based housing.
