The project will construct a center for active life in the community and a training apartment in the center of Jerusalem for 60 young people with severe disabilities. Additionally, the building will house the organization's main offices and a staff training center. The building's facilities will be used effectively and economically throughout the day. During the day, the center will provide a rehabilitative framework for young people over 21 with severe disabilities. During the evening, it will function as an training center for independent life in the community, including sleeping over, training families, and varied community activity.
Tsad Kadima is working together with the residents of the neighborhood and the community administration to plan joint social programs and encounters.
The center will provide an immediate and urgent response for Jerusalem residents and its environs with a pressing need for a framework in the community that will enable them to cope with life as adults with disabilities.
In light of the many years of successful cooperation with the Jerusalem Municipality and the organization's proven professionalism, the Municipality has provided land for Tsad Kadima to step up and provide a solution, given the lack of services for this group. Construction of the building for the day center, the training apartment, and the organization's offices will save the organization NIS 500,000 in annual rent. This amount can then be used for additional direct services.
Providing a solution that residents of the city with severe disabilities need. Developing a community center with an emphasis on active partnership in the community.
Accepting additional participants who currently have no solution because there is no place for them. Saving what the organization currently pays for rent, and thereby increasing the extent of the services provided to participants.Carrying out joint projects with the community.
