AT&T Donated to KSI Transportation Program
10/06/2014 - AT&T recently donated $6,000 to help support Kent-Sussex Industries’ (KSI) Transportation Program. This is the second grant KSI has received from AT&T Inc., an organization committed to advancing education, strengthening communities and improving lives. Through its philanthropic initiatives, AT&T has a long history of supporting projects that create opportunities.
KSI’s Community Inclusion Program is expanding and AT&T is pleased to help provide additional opportunities to adults with disabilities as they engage in their communities through structured and supervised activities. Kent-Sussex Industries, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit, vocational rehabilitation organization that serves the residents of Kent and Sussex Counties.
B. Craig Crouch, KSI CEO, said, “I believe this kind of support is a real indication of how committed AT&T is in making sure all citizens have the chance to be employed and become fully engaged in their communities.”
The mission of KSI is to assist people with disabilities in the pursuit of their potential in employment and meaningful participation in their communities. Approximately 300 individuals receive KSI services per year. Program participants are referred to KSI by agencies such as the Division of Developmental Disabilities Services, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Division for the Visually Impaired, the Veterans Administration, and various school districts. Services provided include transportation, vocational evaluation, work adjustment training, facility based work services, community based work crews, supported employment, and competitive placement.
