Summary

The project is to build and equip a fortified, state-of-the-art early childhood center for children with disabilities in Ashkelon. The young children have autism, developmental delays, genetic syndromes and other disabilities, with the majority living at or below the poverty line. Chimes Israel's current early childhood facilities in Ashkelon are in four overcrowded, inadequately repurposed residential homes. The building will serve 80 children with disabilities.

Challenge

Despite being a major target of Gaza rocket fire, Ashkelon is one of the fastest growing cities in Israel. Because of this, Chimes Israel has been hastily expanding its daycare and rehabilitative programs for children ages six month to three years to meet Ashkelon's ever-increasing demand to care for these children. Chimes Israel's current early childhood facilities in Ashkelon are in four overcrowded, inadequately repurposed residential homes with many stairs and small rooms.

Solution

We are constructing two buildings that will provide early intervention for 140 small children with disabilities. It will be fortified as a protective area, so the young children will be safe and will not have to flee to shelter in times of emergency, such as rocket fire. It will have accessible classrooms, therapy rooms and playgrounds, for education, rehabilitation therapy and paramedical treatment. The new center will provide the best setting for the children to master their disabilities.

Long-Term Impact

The new centers will enable Chimes Israel to provide high quality, professional services, treatment, education and support for hundreds of children in Ashkelon for years to come. For the children, providing intensive diagnosis and early intervention is critical to their developmental trajectories, improving outcomes regarding physical, oratory, cognitive, social, and emotional development. The earlier intervention is implemented, the better a child's chances of achieving their full potential.
