Leadership Statement:

It was in February 1951, that Evelyn Kennedy and a dozen other parents with children with disabilities met to establish The Kennedy Center as a pioneering grassroots organization. Our agency was founded through the efforts of loyal, hardworking, dedicated volunteers and continues to thrive largely because of their efforts today. From its humble beginnings, The Kennedy Center has grown from a program serving fifteen children, to a statewide multifaceted organization that serves nearly 2,500 consumers annually. Today, we serve individuals from birth to senior years, with various disabilities and special needs. The Kennedy Center has sought and consistently achieves the highest accreditation from the CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) standards setting organization, which places it among the top 1% of rehabilitation organizations nationally. As a result, families choose to send their loved ones to The Kennedy Center because of its long-standing reputation in the community for innovative and comprehensive program services. Throughout The Kennedy Center’s history the agency has always gone the extra mile to meet the practical life needs of the individuals we serve. The Kennedy Center is dedicated to preserving the safety and wellbeing of the deserving individuals we serve. Individuals with disabilities are an integral part of our community who deserve the same quality of life as their neighbors. Unfortunately, the needs of these individuals tend to be invisible to the general population. State funding for programs/services are severely limited, and projected to decrease even further. Nonprofits have continually been asked to do more with less, especially in the provision of health and human services. Despite these challenges, we remain committed to advocating on the behalf of individuals with disabilities to address their unmet needs and the needs of our greater community.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

The Kennedy Center actively supports nearly 2,500 individuals with disabilities, from birth to senior years, throughout the state of Connecticut. We educate consumers, the community and rehabilitation professionals to support the empowerment of individuals with disabilities to achieve their greatest potential and optimal inclusion within the community.
