Ken Anderson Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation creating "Live, Work, Engage" opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities. We are beginning in Cincinnati and hope to create integrated models and options that can be replicated across the U.S. We believe that adults with disabilities have the human and civil rights to live, work, play, socialize, recreate, love, learn, and worship in the settings and manner of their choosing, with the support of families, friends, and caregivers.
In November 2017, we launched PLAY (now ENGAGE), social experiences designed by adults with disabilities for adults with disabilities that include a wide variety of small group community outings with staff and volunteer supports. Our survey of adults with disabilities reveal their most frequent request is to socialize with peers and be in the community.
We are currently working to launch WORK, real, paid, integrated employment opportunities through urban agriculture, microenterprises, and community partners. We will augment these with vocational workshops to explore and develop work interests, talents, and abilities.
Our plan is to build our first community, The Commons at Springfield, in Springfield Township. The Commons at Springfield will be an innovative, integrated beneficial residential community that provides permanent supportive, affordable housing for a neurodiverse blend of adults with and without developmental disabilities who have a range of support needs.
