Support Special Needs Adults Working in Israel

by Beit Uri Effective Nonprofit

Summary

Beit Uri is an inclusive residential community for youth and adults with special needs from different religious and cultural backgrounds from all over Israel. Working with our staff and young volunteers from around the world, Beit Uri strives to help every resident, no matter how severe their disability, to participate in income generating arts workshops. This program not only brings joy to our residents but the income raised is reinvested to keep the workshops modern and innovative.

Challenge

Beit Uri's daily arts workshops are the cornerstone of our program. Finding a way to include residents with the severest handicaps and physical struggles is a primary goal. Many cannot hear, speak, see and suffer from behavioral disorders. All are part of a unique framework matching individual skills to handmade natural creations in 12 handicraft, agricultural and domestic workshops. In order to keep these programs innovative and effective we are in dire need of upgrading the equipment.

Solution

These much-needed equipment upgrades will enable Beit Uri's challenged population to continue working in daily wool, weaving, carpentry, basketry, recycled paper, ceramics, baking, gardening and candle making. These items are sold in our in-house gallery and at craft fairs across Israel. With improved equipment we will be able to enhance the effectiveness of the residents' rehabilitation , create higher quality goods and increase Beit Uri's overall sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

By being a partner to a creative process, not only do the residents play a part in producing and working in a unique environment, but their work gives them a great sense of pride, enabling them to give back something to the society that cares for them. Each time one of these times is sold our residents' effort and love helps Beit Uri become an even better place.
