Supported Employment – 21+
Chimes Israel operates occupational placement programs in the normative workplace in collaboration with the local municipalities and under the supervision by the Ministries of Welfare and Health for individuals with special needs. Chimes Israel provides participants with individually supported employment opportunities, placement, guidance and ongoing follow-up.
Chimes Israel believes that employment is pivotal in everyone’s life. For most people, entering the work market is a major component in their lives and is important in building a path to independence and identity development. Work is a source for the development of social relationships, building self-esteem, involvement, activities and the actualization of skills.
Chimes Israel operates three Supported Employment programs, distinguished from one another by the type of target population to which they are intended: Those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental disabilities and physical disabilities.
