From its local programming at over seventy sites in the Chicago area to its international consultations, Keshet strives to meet its most important mission: To do whatever necessary to allow individuals with disabilities to achieve their potential. Keshet serves over 1,000 individuals with special needs and touches the lives of many more family members, peers, supporters, and other stakeholders around the globe. Several core beliefs have guided Keshet’s mission since its inception:
- Children and adults with disabilities do best within the embrace of their own community, so we integrate participants into the mainstream of life at every opportunity.
- We can serve individuals with complicated needs, so we do not have specific criteria for program acceptance.
- No participant should be turned away for inability to pay for services, so we strive tirelessly to collaborate with donors, foundations, and program partners to keep tuitions reasonable and scholarships available.
- Our community partners and donors should share in the lives and successes of the individuals we serve, so we deeply involve those stakeholders in the life of the organization.
