The Kennedy Center -
People with disabilities have the same dreams as all of us. They want to live, work, have friends and be a part of their community. The Kennedy Center supports these desires and wishes by offering a broad range of programs and services for children, adults, and the elderly with diverse disabilities.
Since 1981, The Kennedy Center has sought and consistently achieved the highest accreditation from the CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) standards setting organization. The Kennedy Center is one of the most comprehensive rehabilitation facilities in the State of Connecticut, and currently supports 2,400 individuals with vocational, residential, educational, therapeutic, social and recreational programs and services.
By providing individually designed person-centered planning, family support and community involvement, The Kennedy Center creates a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families. Our dedicated staff work closely with each individual and their family members to explore every avenue of interest. Using a "Team" collaboration process, the individual is able to try new experiences and challenges that are often seen as impossible. It is the mission of The Kennedy Center to promote the empowerment of these individuals to achieve their optimal participation and inclusion in the community with both dignity and confidence.
