THE KANDU EXPERIENCE

Everyday at KANDU is unique. Together, we are all working towards a common goal, creating a better life experience for people with disabilities, and having a lot of fun along the way! Follow our journey as we celebrate life, share laughs and explore our community.

FUN DAYS

Sometimes, you just need to have a little fun. Once a month, KANDU organizes a themed “Fun Day.” Over the years, we’ve had a variety of themes including Hawaiian, Hollywood, and circus day – just to name a few. Staff and clients come together during breaks and lunches to play games, snap pictures, and enjoy each other’s company. These days are like food for the soul!

On the road

Chances are, you’ve seen KANDU buses traveling around Rock County and beyond. We believe getting out and connecting with the community is not only valuable, it’s fun! Whether we are going on a tour, exploring nature or visiting a local business, KANDU clients love interacting with community members. If you see us out on the road, make sure to wave hello!

TALES FROM THE TABLE

Some of life’s best moments are shared over food. Sitting down for lunch together is a daily occurrence at KANDU but there are occasions when we make it extra special. Thanksgiving lunch, Friday fish fry or sharing a cake to celebrate a birthday are all ways we connect over a meal. KANDU clients also enjoy creating new memories at local restaurants and coffee shops. 

CONNECTING THROUGH LAUGHTER

Not a day goes by when we don’t have something to smile about. Giggling over a silly photo, a pie in the face or an inside joke, there is no shortage of laughs at KANDU.

CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES

There is always something to celebrate at KANDU! We not only celebrate the big moments like birthdays, anniversaries and bringing home a gold medal in Special Olympics but also the little things. Having a productive day at work, overcoming a challenge or learning new skills are all things we commemorate.
