Today, the Shekulo Tov group provides rehabilitation to 3,800 service users. Our work is based on the vision to empower people with psychiatric disabilities to live independent and active lives in the community, pursue their personal journeys, and reach their professional goals.
At the heart of our work lies the principle that true inclusion depends upon having vocational rehabilitation opportunities available in mainstream society, outside the mental health system.
This approach is realized through our award-winning IUM: Integrative Unit Model, which has successfully placed over 30% of our service users in the labor market earning at least minimum wage.
Our training platform and programs were developed to provide sheltered employment organizations and mental health professional all over the world with the opportunity to learn and execute the IUM locally, in order to maximize placement and inclusion for people with disabilities.
The Shekulo Tov Group is based in Israel, where we operate 8 social business brands nationally, operated through 120 community IUM-based training units. Out of our 3,800 service users, over 950 have a contract in the open labor market.
