Learning, growing, creating and enjoying each other’s company in a safe and nurturing environment – it’s what we strive for every day for our KANDU clients. We offer a range of options for individuals ages 14 and older of varying abilities and a care team that ensures all health and wellness needs are met. Clients love coming to KANDU, and caregivers know that their loved ones are happy, active, and enjoying a variety of activities and experiences. Our clients broaden their social, emotional, and personal development, and gain a sense of independence and self-worth that everyone deserves.

DAILY LIVING SKILLS

Our person-centered living skills programs grow our clients’ daily independence. With programs for individuals age 14 and older, we cultivate a personalized plan, taking into account each person’s unique abilities and needs. Not only do participants gain increased autonomy, but they also develop increased social, emotional, and personal wellbeing skills.

LIVIN’ & LEARNIN’

Buying a movie ticket, using a cell phone, joining a club – knowing how to accomplish these activities and more outside of work give our clients the independence they need to move confidently through their day. Livin’ & Learnin’ is for individuals ages 14 to 18 and includes support reaching personal goals and opportunities to learn new skills with others in the program.

JOB TRAINING & COMMUNITY EMPLOYMENT

At KANDU, we believe that our clients can thrive in the workplace with the right support and training. Removing barriers to employment is the primary focus of our workforce programs. Whether matching individuals with employers, providing pre-vocational training, or helping someone return to the workplace after an injury, KANDU’s dedicated staff prioritizes matching clients with work that is both fulfilling and a great fit for their abilities.

With weather this beautiful in February, we had to get outside and enjoy it! Clients soaked up the sunshine last week with a few barnyard visitors: goats! 🌞

Brought in by a client's mom, the baby goats were fun for both clients and staff to play with. Bottlefeeding and cuddling ...these little cuties was definitely the highlight of the day!

Chip, chip, hooray - lunchtime just got a little tastier! Frito-Lay donated snack-size chips to fill the KANDU lunch bags presented to clients on their first day of work at our new Milton location. Frito-Lay was so generous that we had quite a few bags left over, so we distributed the extras to ...clients at lunchtime last week. Thank you, Frito-Lay! 🎉

Five seniors from the Global Business Academy at Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville came to KANDU for a tour this week. The students got to interact with clients in programs and production, and then had the opportunity to join KANDU’s Senior Management Meeting for a behind-the-scenes look ...at the inner workings of a non-profit organization.

These seniors were here to learn about the importance of giving back to their community, the impactful role that non-profit organizations play in Rock County, and the personal and professional opportunities that come with being a nonprofit board member. Here’s to the next generation of community leaders!
