HOW KANDU STARTED

In 1961, a small group of parents and community supporters were on a mission to meet the employment needs of their adult children with disabilities. Today, that mission has grown into a thriving 501(c)(3) organization. In 2023 KANDU was recognized as Forward Janesville Large Business of the Year.

FINDING PURPOSE

Starting at age 14, clients with disabilities and disadvantages and their families turn to KANDU for friendship, acceptance, and purpose. By providing a range of fulfilling and enriching opportunities, we offer our clients the chance to earn a living, make friends, and thrive among their peers.

Smiling and waving

Through our operations, KANDU offers valuable services to the business and local community that support our underlying mission of providing opportunities for our clients.

PACKAGING AND PRODUCTION SERVICES

KANDU’s Packaging and Production Services allow companies to maximize their profits by outsourcing time-consuming and tedious processes to our skilled client workforce. Our business customers benefit from a well-trained, efficient workforce and competitive prices, while our clients learn valuable job skills and earn a living.

COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT

KANDU’s community employment program helps local businesses save money on recruitment and training costs by pairing them with individuals who may not otherwise have a chance to find meaningful employment. KANDU program managers assess your operations to match you with highly qualified employee labor, provide pre-employment and on-the-job training, supervision, and ongoing support so businesses know they are achieving maximum efficiency.

Livin' and Learnin' went to their annual Beloit Sky Carp game at ABC Supply Stadium recently. They enjoyed ballpark snacks and a visit with Poopsie, the Sky Carp's goose mascot. The Sky Carp ended up winning in extra innings! It was a very fun and exciting afternoon. ⚾

Clients in ISP and Livin' and Learnin' went to Pacesetter Alpacas last month. Clients got to feed and pet the alpacas and learned how their wool is spun into yarn. We are thankful to the Pacesetter farm for welcoming us and giving clients such a wonderful learning experience. Not to ...mention the alpacas are so cute and soft!
