Ziv manages a number of game-changing projects and initiatives. He is responsible for raising awareness among policy makers and service providers of the person-centered approach - a modern approach that changes the way we view and fund services for people with disabilities. Instead of determining services based on the type of disability, this approach looks at the needs of the individual and includes him or her at all stages of service.
Ziv also manages the Mentoring program, which makes community-based connections between isolated and lonely people with disabilities and mentors who help them achieve goals. The Apartment Initiative is a project spearheaded by Israel Unlimited that will provide rent-free, life-long apartments for people with disabilities.
Ziv holds a Masters in law and completed his internship in Law and Disabilities at the University of Haifa. He studied toward a Masters in Philosophy from the Hebrew University. Before joining Israel Unlimited, Ziv worked at Alut (The Israel Society for Autistic Children) for five years, where he now continues to serve on the board. Ziv also previously served as the legal advisor to the Knesset Committee on Labor, Welfare and Health.
