Israel Unlimited: Empowering People with Disabilities

Israel Unlimited was founded by JDC, the Ruderman Family Foundation, and the Government of Israel in the fall of 2009 to meet the needs of Israel’s 700,000 adults with disabilities (aged 20-64) and to advance independent living and integration of Israelis with disabilities into general Israeli Society. The focus is on adults who are at high risk - parents, women, immigrants, Arabs, the newly disabled and adults with multiple disabilities.

The video below showcases one program developed by Israel Unlimited called 'Mother to Another', a peer mentorship program for mothers with disabilities that focuses on their specific needs.
