Kesher is an organization whose innovative service was established in 1993, designed specifically to help parents of children with all types of disabilities - physical, mental, intellectual, sensorial and emotional and chronic illnesses, to cope better with the everyday difficulties of raising their child. One phone call connects them to a professional whose expertise lies in applying a problem-solving approach. Kesher’s comprehensive information, counseling and support services connect parents to the service system. Our policy is to provide a tailor-made solution until they reach the optimal solution. This approach makes Kesher tremendously important and is greatly appreciated by parents.
The organization has branches throughout the country - Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa - in partnership with Municipal authorities and other organizations. The branches serve as centers for training of social work students from various Universities and Colleges.
For its successful projects and innovative approach Kesher founder and director, Ms Maya Goldman, was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for the Protection of the Child in 1997, and in 2003 the Leonore & Larry Zusman-JDC Prize for excellence in the field of social services in Israel.
