Beit Issie Shapiro is a community organization providing a continuum of services to enhance the opportunities of people with developmental disabilities, in Israel. Beit Issie Shapiro provides a network of therapeutic, educational and social support programs to infants, children and adults, and their families. We strive to make home care of children with special needs a feasible alternative. We create opportunities for shared social and educational experiences in which children and adults with disabilities can learn and enjoy experiences together with people who do not have disabilities. We constantly seek ways to involve the community in the life of our Center.
