Our individuals are our primary stakeholders. The people who come to KenCCID for services and supports are at the forefront of everything we do.
The families of the people we support are also important to us. We involve families and make them feel welcome to be a part of their family member’s life at KenCCID. More about our Stakeholders
KenCCID strives to promote dignity and choice to empower Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities reach their full potential.
Ensures that the rights, safety and well-being of the Individuals are protected and observed at all times; utilizing trained professional staff and community resources to enrich and enhance our Individuals’ quality of life.
Kensington Community Corporation for Individual Dignity was conceptualized by several Philadelphia Families from the Kensington area of the city, some of whom had family members who were developmentally disabled.
At the time of its founding, the era of court ordered de-institutionalization for the mentally ill into boarding homes and other unsupported environments was just beginning. Recognizing a need for services, these concerned Kensington residents worked diligently to form a non-profit corporation that would provide the quality lifestyle their loved ones deserved.
