Koinonia doesn’t see disabilities. It sees many possibilities.
What kind of life do you want for yourself and what kind of life do you want for your children? For many people, they want to be welcomed, accepted and valued in every neighborhood, school, and workplace and throughout our communities. To be viewed and judged no differently than anyone else. For people to focus on what you can do, rather than what you cannot do. They want to be sought-after by employers, and to serve as active participants in the workforce. They hope to be defined by their strengths, capabilities and natural value. They hope they won't face hardships due to low wages, or a lack of training, transportation and access to technology and personal support.
That’s what people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families want too.
Koinonia is Northeast Ohio’s premier nonprofit provider of residential and day programs and employment services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It empowers nearly 600 men and women, helping them live healthy, fulfilling and enriching community-integrated lives. Its rich collection of services extends to residents and families in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina and Summit counties.
There are many opportunities for local businesses to connect with Koinonia. Its team works closely with partners to identify sponsorship opportunities that reflect each company’s business
priorities and philanthropic goals. Its collaborations take many forms, including, job coaching, “adopt a job seeker,” and transportation branding.
With support from each business, Koinonia will help hundreds more people fulfill their ideal vision of a beautiful community.
