At Shalva, we always aim to meet our children and families wherever they may be on their rehabilitative journey.

With our children and families in quarantine due to COVID-19, we took this charge literally and launched a new initiative to give them the tools to care for their children right in their homes. Shalva@home is an online knowledge center and virtual support group which offers weekly, educational webinars free of charge. Shalva’s professional staff present topics which are particularly relevant to parents of children with disabilities and so far we’ve had an amazing response.

The Shalva@home project establishment has been sponsored by the Genesis Prize Foundation and we look forward to continuing it into the future as an important service to families of children with disabilities in Israel and beyond.
