After School Activity Center In Memory of Sima & Rubin Wagner
The After School Activity Center is where Shalva’s children together with peer volunteers
from the broader community enjoy daily therapy-oriented activities like sports, drama, arts, music, and swimming. The program’s experiential learning curriculum prepares children with disabilities for the transition to adulthood and the world beyond.
Respite Program Dedicated by Susan and Leonard Feinstein
Children ages 6-21 sleep over at Shalva’s respite center one night a week and two weekends every month. They receive individualized guidance in personal care, enjoy fun night activities and master independence while their families experience a rare opportunity to rejuvenate their spirits and focus on personal needs.
During the summer vacation, 300 children with disabilities participate in day and overnight camps at the Shalva National Center. Shalva’s camp uniquely demonstrates both inclusion and reverse inclusion by enabling children with disabilities to experience public attractions and activities together with peer volunteers from the broader community.
