The House of Wheels, which has been operating since 1979, provides a range of services for children and adults with impaired mobility, mainly due to cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy
The Association provides solutions to the shortage in extramural activities and lack of social structures that are appropriate for this population. The House of Wheels provides weekend activities, as well as summer camps and activity classes. In addition, the Association operates a job placement project, which assigns the adult participants to jobs on the open market with an appropriate wage. Hundreds of volunteers are active in the Association, young people in their twenties, students and professionals, whose dedication over the years has helped the participants to break through the boundaries of their disability, enriches their world and inspires them.
About 400 participants benefit from the five branches across Israel: in Herzlia; Even Sapir near Jerusalem; Bustan Hagalil in the North; and Kibbutz Urim in the Negev. The fifth branch, established in 2008, holds its activities at Kibbutz Kramim in the Negev and is designed for children of the Bedouin sector.
