WHAT WE DO

Quality Residential Services
Clients are provided daily living skill instruction, socialization, and cognitive skills. Staff members are present in the home at all times and together with the residents, everyone will function as a large extended family creating a place that is truly home. Everyday repetition (a key to learning), is stressed in giving each client certain responsibilities.
Economic Self-Sufficiency: Banking, budgeting, supported employment, shopping, daily living skills including hygiene, grooming, cleaning and laundry.
Transportation: Clients will learn ability to self- transport; individuals can participate in P.A.C.E. programs.
Volunteer opportunities in churches (we will address different dominations), senior activities, social group, horticulture classes, community college courses, multicultural experiences. Individual goals are developed addressing the needs of each individual. Social activities and events will also play a large role in community integration.

KDS will utilize a multi-step process to secure our residents with prospective employers from various companies. This supported employment will afford individuals an opportunity to achieve independence financially and emotionally within society.
