About Alin Beit Noam
Alin Beit Noam is a non-profit organization operating since 1941 to provide assistance to people with disabilities. The organization works to eliminate the exclusion and discrimination faced by people with disabilities in Israel and to make a place for them within Israeli society in terms of their quality of life, their status and the services allocated for this unique population.
For decades, the organization has operated a wide range of groundbreaking projects aimed at improving the quality of life for people with intellectual, physical, sensory and mental disabilities, in addition to the organization’s activities dedicated to promoting social change and acceptance of others, and those who are different.
The organization’s main operations are located in Kiryat Ono at Beit Noam where it runs a number of projects for people with severe and complex physical and intellectual disabilities who use wheelchairs and have complex communication needs. The projects include a daycare center, housing facility, respite care services and a hydrotherapy treatment center.
In addition, Alin Beit Noam has invested extensively in research and training opportunities, offering consultation services for professionals and the general population through the Center for Augmentative and Alternative Communication and the Institute for Disability Training and Research.
Alin Beit Noam has become a dominant force among professionals in the field and the organization’s many projects have become the Mecca for professionals, policymakers, and academics, as well, of course, as for people with disabilities and their families.
The organization is currently working on a large-scale national social project named Kiryat Elga – The Neighborhood of Unlimited Possibilities. This new and unique neighborhood conforms to principles of universal and inclusive design on land provided by the Israel Land Authority in the Kadima Zoran regional council. The neighborhood will serve a large population of people with and without disabilities and will include integrated community housing along with student dormitories, as well as a daycare center for people with complex disabilities integrated in a regional community center, and a national center for training and research in the field of disability studies and universal and inclusive design. In addition, it will have a guesthouse and respite facility, an occupational training center for people with disabilities, employment facilities that integrate employees with disabilities, a gallery for social arts, a sports and recreation center including a swimming pool, gym, Pilates studio, a spa and a multipurpose hall, as well as an outdoor challenge park. All facilities in the neighborhood will be accessible to people with a range of disabilities and are intended for use by both people with and without disabilities.
