A new, pilot project, supporting a group of high-functioning autistic young adults, integrated into the community, has been launched by the “Avnei Derech”, Milestone Association.
This project, in conjunction with the National Insurance Institute and is supported by the Zarrow family foundation through Galila.
The group of young adults will live, work or study in the northern town of Kiryat Shemona, under the supervision of the Avnei Derech counselors, social workers and other specialist care givers.
The success of this first-of-a-king program will help pave the way and be a milestone for more groups all over the country to break the stigma and limitations on autistic people and will help to fully integrate them in the community.
We at Galila are very proud to take little part in supporting this pilot.
