KenCrest 2021 Annual Report


115 Years of Home, Health, and Happiness!

A Message from our CEO

In 2020, KenCrest celebrated 115 years as a human services provider organization.

KenCrest 2021 Annual Report

It’s amazing to reflect, recognize, and appreciate what has been accomplished since our early beginnings as a few dedicated individuals helping immigrants with tuberculosis in a Philadelphia neighborhood. It’s just as amazing to think


n the past year, KenCrest staff ensured that the

people we support enjoyed as much normalcy as

possible, even when activities in the community or seeing friends and family were limited. Staff

created new activities for residents in our homes to engage with one another, oftentimes through daily virtual “meetings.” We continued to turn over the

keys to apartments for people who wanted a place of their own through our Supported Independent

Living program. And our Lifesharing families went above and beyond to keep the people in their care on their daily routines to minimize the impact

of the pandemic. For many at KenCrest, “home”

While there were plenty of difficulties and sorrows in the past year, we tried to bring some moments

of happiness to those we support. Annual trips to

the shore were replaced with virtual vacations with the help of new enabling technology to “visit” a new land or experience the front row of a rock concert for the first time. Staff acknowledged

residents’ birthdays with drive-by celebrations,

balloons, singing “happy birthday” from their cars,

and gifts. And when it was safe, children who wanted

to return to their Early Learning Centers were

happy to be with their mask-wearing friends again. It’s been quite a historic year for us in so many ways, and through it all, we’ve kept our focus on home, health, and happiness for all whom we support.

In 2020, KenCrest celebrated our 115th anniversary as a human services organization whose focus remains on creating meaningful lives for the communities we serve.



We’ve come a long way since 1905 and the singular focus of treating those with tuberculosis in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Over the course of 115 years, KenCrest has expanded our locations to include Connecticut, Delaware, and Southeastern Pennsylvania. While each state offers slightly different services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, all of them provide residential living options. But at KenCrest, our residences are more than a place to live…they are a place to truly call “home.”

KenCrest staff strives to ensure that every resident enjoys the space in which they live. One such person, featured on the next page, is Mike, who takes delight in the beauty of his own backyard. Two

roommates, Darryl and Fred, are also part of Supported Independent Living. They chose to relax in the safety of their home during the

pandemic. These gentlemen enjoy the freedom that living in their

own place gives them, while receiving

the support services they might need from KenCrest.

For those with complex medical needs, KenCrest’s Community Medical Homes

support professionals who not only attend to the residents’ needs 24 hours a day, but also

create cozy and inviting living spaces. This spring, after 17 years of living in a Transitional

Care Home for Children, Tracy left her KenCrest residence to move to her biological family’s home. During her time with KenCrest, the staff who cared for Tracy took her on many trips, including one to Disney World via the Make-a-Wish Foundation, celebrated her birthdays,

prom and high school graduation, and even taught her how to sew masks when the pandemic

hit. Tracy, who has depended on specialized care for her entire life, overcame many obstacles in her long journey, and KenCrest persevered and advocated until Tracy was able to move on to her next home — with her family.

Since 1985, Lifesharing provider families have opened up their own homes and invited

someone with disabilities to share their lives in a supportive family environment. People with disabilities share more than meals and vacations with their provider family…they share their hopes and dreams for the future. They also learn to trust and care for one another. During

this past year, family providers went the extra mile in many ways to ensure the health and

safety of their lifesharing partners, like Rhonda Moore with the gentleman who shares her

home, Tom. Rhonda had the barbershop call her when no one was there so that Tom could keep up with his routine trim, which is important to him, and he would not be exposed to

others while getting his hair cut. This was a small thing for Rhonda, but it meant the world to Tom.

Despite the COVID-19 challenges during the past year, we made keeping everyone safe and feeling loved in their home a priority. After all, there’s no place like home. P

The health of those we support as well as our staff was at the forefront of every discussion and decision as we began our 115th year as an organization — just as it was in 1905. With the coronavirus rapidly spreading, the leadership at KenCrest acted quickly and met several times a week to discuss what needed to happen in each program, how new safety protocols were working, and how to offer our clients and staff vaccines when the opportunities arose.


o keep the residents in our homes as safe as possible, staff were trained on new safety protocols regarding

hand washing, wearing masks properly, new cleaning

procedures, and limiting visits with people who did not

live or work in the homes. Direct support staff stepped up

in every way to keep the residents in their care, as well as themselves, protected from exposure to the virus. Thanks to many generous donors, KenCrest received masks,

cleaning supplies, and personal protective equipment to keep residents and staff safe.

Our Early Learning Centers had to move to virtual

learning for much of the year to ensure that students and teachers could safely learn while not being face-to-face

in a classroom. We also offered weekly virtual trainings

for parents called SmartConnections, which gave parents

“I was so excited to be asked to work at one of KenCrest’s vaccine clinics …I was willing to do whatever I could to help our staff and our clients, and working the clinic was a great experience. It was fantastic to see so many people take this step to protect their health and the health of those around them.” Nicole P., KenCrest staff member strategies for mental health check-ins with themselves and their children. These sessions, conducted by Ms. Marilyn, the Family Service Worker at the Kensington Early Learning

Center, offered valuable tips for parents in handling their children’s behaviors and emotions during the pandemic. Many families raved about how helpful her suggestions were and how they changed the family dynamics for the better during this challenging time. When we made the decision to suspend activities at our Pennsylvania Community

members, and other human service provider agencies in the region. KenCrest leadership worked closely with the Office of Developmental Programs and the Philadelphia

Department of Public Health to make the vaccines available to all staff and residents

who wished to receive it. More than 850 people received vaccinations at KenCrest hosted

clinics in Pennsylvania in the spring of 2021. We also found vaccination sites for our employees and clients in Delaware and Connecticut through their government health

services, and teamed up with Walgreen’s to do several mobile vaccination clinics for homebound people.

No matter what service people received this past year, KenCrest made every effort possible to maintain their health and safety.

The pandemic forced the cancellation of many daily activities this past year. However, KenCrest found ways to bring happiness to those we support to keep spirits up and put smiles on faces.

Happiness at KenCrest


everal people supported in our Employment program had to learn new safety protocols as well as a few new responsibilities, especially those

working in grocery stores like ACME and Giant. Despite the changes that the pandemic brought to their jobs, all of them had one thing in common: they were happy to be working, especially when so many were not as fortunate. Billy, a store associate at Walmart since September 2020, was thrilled to be working, earning a paycheck, and socializing with his peers.

When milestone birthdays, like Wayne’s 50th, came around for our residents,

KenCrest staff formed drive-by caravans with balloons and signs hanging from their cars and honked horns. Drivers sang “Happy Birthday” or shouted well

wishes to the honorees who sat at the end of driveways. Staff made sure that each person in our care who celebrated a milestone birthday received some

extra-special love this year. We also made “happiness deliveries” to those who needed a little pick-me-up with balloons, flowers, or a basket of treats. (continued on next page)

P When Wayne celebrated his 50th birthday, KenCrest staff formed a caravan to drive by his residence, sing, honk, and wish him well.

Because those we support could not go out into the community as they had before the pandemic, KenCrest invented new ways for them to

enjoy their days. Through a private website, staff created new weekly activities including bingo, drawing classes, dance parties, cooking

lessons, chair yoga, and sing-a-longs, to name a few. Our Enabling

Technology department purchased four sets of virtual reality goggles that allow people to take “virtual vacations” from the comfort of their homes. They also delivered convertible laptops (which are both a

laptop and a tablet in one device) to many of our homes so that more residents could connect with others online when in-person visits were not possible. Family members were able to visit their loved one at a

hugging booth that KenCrest built in one of our Pennsylvania Community Participation locations. Families, like KenCrest resident Drew and his

parents, could safely give hugs through a plexiglass wall with hugging sleeves built into it, bringing smiles and happy tears to many faces. After several months of not having in-person education, our Early

Learning Centers opened up again in January 2021, allowing children to come back to the classrooms if they desired. The little learners

were thrilled to be able to see their friends and teachers again. Even

through the masks, their smiles lit up the rooms that had been empty for many months.

Although we faced countless limitations this past year, KenCrest continued to deliver the happiness that our clients deserve. 15

Not even a pandemic could slow down KenCrest’s crucial advocacy efforts on behalf of children, families, and people with disabilities.

At KenCrest, we offer a variety of ways for our donors to invest in our mission. Gifts designated for “where it’s needed most” will allow KenCrest to address our most critical needs. You are also welcome to restrict your gift for a specific program or need, such as improvements to a community living home, transportation needs, supplies for our Early Learning Centers, or employment opportunities.

Ways to Give Checks Please make checks payable to KenCrest.

Credit Cards We accept credit cards over the phone or online at: www.kencrest.org/donate

United Way You can designate KenCrest through Donor Choice #00839.

Matching Gifts Check with your HR department to see if your company has a matching gift program. The doubling of your gift has a huge impact on those we serve.

Legacy Gifts Many donors choose to fulfill their philanthropic wishes in coordination with their financial and estate

plans. You may also choose to name KenCrest as a beneficiary of your will, trust, retirement plan, or insurance policy. You may also choose to establish a gift that pays an income to you, the donor, before ultimately benefitting KenCrest.

To learn more about giving opportunities, contact Jeff Dubnow, Chief Development Officer, at 610-825-9360, ext. 1023. 32 | KenCrest 2021 Annual Report
