KSI Initiates "The Better Half" Campaign for COVID Relief
5/5/2020 - This is a challenging time for nonprofits and businesses alike. However, KSI is steadfast in its mission to serve people with developmental disabilities with the employment training and life enrichment opportunities they need.

As the organization prepares to restart after state restrictions begin phasing out, KSI is asking the public to use “The Better Half” of their federal economic stimulus checks to help offset funding losses due to the COVID-19 shut down and ensure staff employment needed to properly serve program participants.
KSI understands many people desperately need their federal COVID economic stimulus checks to make it through months of unemployment. But there are others who are still making income during the economic shutdown and perhaps don’t need the federal stimulus as much. Giving half of it to help people with disabilities in the coming months will impact the hundreds of individuals’ lives KSI touches each program day.
KSI is a not for profit agency providing vocational training, employment, supported employment, community integration, transportation, day habilitation, life enrichment, and nutritional services to individuals with disabilities throughout Kent and Sussex Counties. KSI is committed to making all reasonable accommodations in order to ensure that its programs and services are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible.
