The Koinonia Mission

To partner with people who have developmental disabilities and other complex conditions, resulting in the highest possible quality of life through integrated, whole-person care.

At Koinonia, we have brought together our decades of experience serving and advocating for people with IDD with the mission of helping people to live the life they choose and achieve their personal goals. Koinonia’s vision ensures that we address the whole person, integrating care and services in ways that support the unique needs and preferences of each person. 

Locations

Our service portfolio includes 22 licensed group homes, over 50 supported living arrangements, transportation services, and shared living options, all provided in safe and healthy settings. We offer 24/7 care and drop-in residential options, as well as assistance to adults and youth transitioning from school to the working world. 

Meaning

Koinonia (coin-o-NEE-yah) is a rich, complex word of Greek origin. Community, partnership, and generous sharing are at the heart of the word. It is translated into English to mean fellowship. Learn More

Services

Mental & Behavioral Health

Integrated, Whole-Person Care

We understand that psychiatric and behavioral care needs to be accessible, comprehensive, and individualized. At Koinonia, we have the resources and expertise needed to manage the complexities of psychiatric and behavioral care.

Day & Employment Services

Developmental Disabilities

At Koinonia Enterprises, we offer facility-based programs such as adult day services, vocational habilitation services, community programming, in-home programming, and virtual programming.

Shared Living

Residential Services

Shared living enables individuals to receive continuous care while living with a nurturing family. Cared for by thoroughly trained providers, the individuals get to be a part of a community that is flexible and personalized to their needs.

ICF Group Homes

Residential Services

A positive, comfortable environment is what makes a house a home. In our group homes, individuals become active, decisive participants in small households of five to eight people. They benefit from the 24-hour support our staff provides in each of our homes, located in residential neighborhoods throughout Northeast Ohio.

Supported Living

Residential Services

Our supported living services focus on each individual’s specific necessities and preferences, whether they need drop-in support or 24-hour assistance. Individuals choose where to live and assert responsibility by paying their living expenses.

Multi-System Youth

Residential Services

Koinonia’s new youth housing model offers short-term respite and long-term care (up to six months) for children with both IDD and behavioral concerns. Children in the program live in a home environment where they are cared for by a single set of live-in “house parents.”

Respite

Whole-Person Services

Koinonia’s respite care services offer provisional assistance for families and unpaid providers in need of planned respite and emergency placements for their loved ones. Our compassionate staff provide 24/7 supervision in an accessible and comfortable environment.

Compass Pathfinder Program

Transitional Youth Services

The only program of its kind in Ohio, the Compass Pathfinder Program partners with school districts and county boards of developmental disabilities to leverage Koinonia’s extensive expertise to improve graduation and employment rates among students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Transportation

Getting People from Place to Place

We proudly offer safe and reliable non-medical transportation for people who have developmental disabilities and other complex medical conditions. We follow COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all passengers, including cleaning and disinfecting between each route and at the end of each day.
