THE DOORS OF KOINONIA ARE WIDE OPEN

Leaving their homes daily, the individuals we serve cross thresholds that lead to activity, growth, and learning that expand their personal boundaries and provide the quality supports that they need and enjoy. Meaningful work, internships, job coaching, volunteering commitments, attendance and participation in community, civic, sporting and religious events, and outings with family and friends await them.
