American Friends of Shalva provides financial support for Shalva Israel. Shalva was founded in 1990 on the premise that mentally and physically challenged children are not just the responsibility of the families to which they were born. Shalva, which means peace of mind, tranquility, gives the mentally challenged a chance to play their special role in this world. Shalva enables parents to cope with the incessant pressures of caring for a severely challenged child, and to experience the joy and satisfaction of raising their exceptional child at home. With its dedicated staff of professional educators and therapists, and augmented by trained volunteers, Shalva provides unique programs for hundreds of special needs children from the entire spectrum of Israeli society.
