The Supportive Home
The houses are supported by therapists, social workers, a Beit Elisha ‘mother’ or ‘father’, and other professionals from the hosting community.
Providing members with work opportunities to work and socialize with clients and their communities awards them a meaningful life with personal and professional fulfillment. Work settings include pottery and paper workshops, hand weaving, and food production (bakery & kitchen), horse stables, organic vegetable garden, and a coffee shop.
Personal Growth through Recreation
Social and cultural activities like sports, painting, sculpting, carpentry, stage and theater arts, music, folk dancing, and other artistic streams enable each individual to explore new interests, develop skills and experience himself/herself as a whole and as part of a larger community.
Complemented by the formal care of social workers and a psychiatrist, members receive a wide range of therapeutic assistance including physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, therapeutic horseback riding, music & singing, and art therapy.
