State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today participated in a tour of the Koinonia Day Center, the largest private provider of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Cuyahoga County.

Koinonia, which employs more than 500 people, offers day support as well as vocational and career needs. Their mission is to partner with people who have developmental disabilities to achieve healthy, fulfilling, enriched lives.

“I was honored to receive an invitation to be a visitor at The Koinonia Day Center,” Representative Anielski said. “The Koinonia community utilizes the tools and resources of its staff and facility to assist and serve our friends and neighbors with developmental disabilities. The day center’s partnership with residential services helps each individual retain their independence while also providing the support services they need to succeed.”

Koinonia’s long-term care services are provided to individuals who live in 21 group homes, 50 supported living sites, and three host homes. Total enrollment in Koinonia’s residential, day, vocational and career programs is 424 participants. It is funded through Medicaid, Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities, private pay and donations.
