KSI Celebrates Renovations at Skill Development Center with Ribbon Cutting

On Tuesday, December 12, a host of guests gathered at KSI’s Milford Skill Development Center on North Rehoboth Blvd., Milford to celebrate the renovation recently completed on the Life Enrichment Program area.


This first phase of KSI’s renovation was largely funded by a Community Reinvestment Grant from the State of Delaware. The new area boasts lower ceilings with acoustical tiles for better sound control, upgraded computer systems, more efficient HVAC utilities for comfort with a four-unit air system equipped with fresh air intakes to ensure healthy circulation, mid-room retractable partitions will create separate learning spaces to avoid distractions during life skills lessons and a new exterior ramp making emergency exits more manageable. The agency goal is to renovate all other programming areas at an estimated cost of $3.3 million.
