About the project
Beit MICHA serves as a rehabilitation day center for Jewish and Arab hearing impaired children aged 0-5 and operates one of the few audiology labs in the city. Established in 1969, its treatment programs have a success rate of nearly 100% in integrating early intervention participants into society by the age of four. Currently, MICHA Jerusalem cares for dozens of children per year, including those in its specialized nursery school programs, those who receive individual therapy and those who participate in other activities at the center. For many years MICHA was located in downtown Jerusalem; in 2015 it inaugurated a building, built by the Jerusalem Foundation, which was designed according to Israel’s latest sustainable construction standards.
