The mission of KSI is to provide person-centered supports to assist people with disabilities in the pursuit of their potential in employment and meaningful participation in their communities. KSI, as an organization, believes that work, community integration, and the opportunity to contribute and grow as a person, is important to all people, especially people with disabilities. Integration with others in our society helps to give our lives purpose and meaning. Community integration allows us to learn and be successful, and to interact with people in the pursuit of common goals or outcomes. Employment and community integration creates opportunities for choice, education, recreation, and socialization and allows us a chance to discover talents and skills we never knew we had.
