It is the mission of the Ali Hope Foundation to pursue the empowerment of deaf-blind people, to promote their independence, to strengthen their confidence and to encourage them to achieve their full potential as members of society.
Ali Hope was started in 2006 to to improve the independence and well-being of Deaf and Deaf-Blind Israelis through the provision of specially-trained Hearing Dogs. Our dogs give deaf people security of sounds around them, and they know they have a dog that can be trusted for their safety. The dogs are specially trained to assist by alerting Deaf and Deaf-Blind people to become aware of certain needed daily sounds they miss out on both at home and in public places.

Tamara Meirovich, a deaf mother of 2 with vision loss due to Usher's Syndrome, was never comfortable relying upon a cane for mobility. After being struck by a car, she became housebound and wouldn't go out alone at all. Receiving her first specially-trained dog, Pepsi, changed her life, and she became independent again. She decided to become a dog trainer and train dogs for other Deaf-blind people so that they, too, could be independent. This desire became the birth of Ali Hope. In 2006, the training of the first 3 dogs began. In December, 2008, our first dog, Sol, went to live with her new owner, Yael. It has been a very successful partnership with Sol increasing Yael's mobility and independence greatly. We currently have 2 other dogs in training and 22 people on the waiting list to receive dogs.
