Starting July 1st we will offer Community-Based Pre-Voc Services for current and new consumers. Programing will take place in-community at various training sites under the direction of a life skill coach.

 

Pathways to Employment Services have begun at Keon which will help interested consumers to determine individualized plans that will reflect personal interests in employment goals to experience a variety of employment opportunities that will aid in determining future employment tracks.

 

Bill Melville was recently honored by the Hendrick Hudson Lions Club at The Beekman Golf Club for his 37 years of service at the Keon Center. The Lions Club presented a check for $500.00 to the Center.

Group Day Habilitation Services

Activites include meal preparation, money skills, shopping, personal care and safety. The Day Habilitation consumers participate in various recreational activities. These activities include but are not limited to Miracle league baseball, bowling, horseback riding, basketball, floor hockey, walking, fishing, Bingo, Nintendo Wii, and X-Box Kinnect.

The Day Habilitation consumers also learn horticulture skills by planting, fertilizing, and watering their vegetable garden. When the vegetables are ready to be picked, they are washed and made into healthy snacks. The Day Habilitation group enjoys trips to the Bronx and Bear Mountain Zoos, the Norwalk Aquarium, various museums, Imax theatres and farms to go apple picking or interact with animals.

The Day Habilitation group also gives back to the community by volunteering their assistance whereever needed. We currently volunteer at the Salvation Army in Peekskill, serving hot meals to the homeless or displaced. We also volunteer at the Croton Point Park nature museum arranging displays and providing general maintenance.

Individuals who participate in the Day Habilitation program are able to be blended with other waiver programs here at the Keon Center giving them the chance to have a variety of programming in their day. Each participant will have an individualized Day Habilitation plan based upon their own desires and needs, and the opportunity to be a part of an ongoing progress review.

Dennis Keon

This Site is Dedicated
to the Memory of
Dennis Keon.

 

Dennis was one of our original consumers, and we had the pleasure of sharing his life for over 50 years.

 

Dennis' family were pioneers. They raised Dennis at home and he truly became an active part of the community. We are named after Dennis' father who was instrumental in giving us the brick & mortar of our first school.

 

While we have grown over the years from a school to an agency now serving disabled adults in a variety of programs, we have maintained the Keon name to honor the efforts put forth by Dennis' family in fostering the dream of community living and reaching goals that at the time seemed unreachable.

 

We are truly blessed for all that Dennis gave over the years. He will always be with us.

 

Go Yankees!
