Children with Special Needs

There is a need to provide treatment for children in Ramat Negev who have special needs (either educational and behavioral) in Ramat Negev so that their families do not have to travel outside the region to get these services. The Ramat Negev Regional Council, in partnership with Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado, subsidizes professional counselors to provide these services in the region—some counselors live in the region, and others travel to the region from other parts of the country. Federation funds approximately one-third of the cost of providing these services—the remainder is funded by the Israeli government, parent fees, and the Ramat Negev Regional Council.
