All Cochav residents receive individual care and attention, including assistance with developing skills that will enable them to function independently in the work force and to participate in social recreational activities. The overall focus is on improving participants' quality of life, while retaining continuous warm relations with their families.
The housing operates within the community and with its participation. Many local volunteers spend time, on a regular basis, with Cochav residents to help them feel connected to social life in the local community and contribute to the diversity of their activities, and the feeling of connection to the community.
The Cochav housing staff includes a director, a social worker, advancement program coordinator, a recreation and community relations coordinator, a physical therapist, a psychiatrist, and counselors.
