Keshet is one of a few organizations in the United States where children with disabilities can begin programs at the age of three and continue to receive support throughout adulthood. Keshet’s programs ensure that those with disabilities have the opportunity to experience iconic activities that define growth and development—graduating from kindergarten, making a best friend, playing on a sports team, going to camp, finding a job, getting a first apartment, and more. Through educational, recreational, vocational, and residential programs, Keshet serves nearly 600 people with disabilities each year through 75 different programs primarily in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. With a focus on inclusion, an additional 4,000 school and camp peers, volunteers, family members, coworkers, friends, and staff are impacted by Keshet annually. HPCF funding supports Highland Park and Highwood residents who participate in Keshet’s MY Life program, which provides supportive housing, in the community, for adults with disabilities.
