Welcome Abode!

Spread over 13 acres in the midst of serene nature in close proximity to Mumbai and Pune is Om ABODE.
A one-of-its-kind Social Innovation Institute with a Residential Campus that is committed to empower persons with multiple disabilities in meaningful and holistic ways.

About Om ABODE

For nearly three decades, two pioneering Mumbai-based non-profit organisations, Om Creations Trust & Shraddha Charitable Trust, supported by a dynamic team of visionary trustees, dedicated special educators and committed professionals, have been engaged in chanelling the inherent skills of persons with multiple disabilities in productive ways. Thus, empowering them to secure a livelihood and to live with a sense of independence, self-worth and dignity.

Over the years, one of the chief concerns has been to provide for ageing beneficiaries. As they advance in years, various physical, social and emotional issues need to be addressed. Many of the older beneficiaries are afflicted by age-related ailments; many others find themselves alone after losing their parents.

Such shifts can only be resolved with a long-term vision, a single-minded mission and a collective passion to benefit special individuals across a spectrum of age groups and disabilities through an inclusive and integral approach.
