AKIM’s Programs & Services
Through the department of Advocacy for Inclusion within the community, AKIM provides support and assistance in all aspects of life for people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
Going to work and feeling part of a significant daily activity is an important element of every person’s life; even more so, when the person has an intellectual disability.
As part of AKIM’s vision of inclusion, it established a unique collaboration with one of the greatest tools for integration and solidarity in Israeli society, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).
AKIM sees creative expression and culture as keys to a healthy lifestyle and important elements of leading a meaningful life.
To meet the unique needs of persons with intellectual disabilities, people with autism and rehabilitation, the Disabilities Administration at the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs established a dental program that is operated by AKIM Israel.
AKIM firmly believes that every person has a basic right to live within the community, in a housing structure that suits his/her various and changing needs over the years.
