KCR Celebrates 55 years of Caring!
Keystone Community Resources, (KCR) is celebrating their 55th year Anniversary, reaching a major milestone and emerald year this March. There will be many events and celebrations to be held in 2019, including the Scranton St. Patrick’s Day Parade introducing our new logo, “Celebrating 55 years in Caring” and a Kick-off Celebration in March.
KCR opened in downtown Scranton on March 24, 1964 as KCR Training and Rehabilitation Residence. Prior to that, isolated state institutions were the setting of choice for people with autism and developmental disabilities. Founded by Ignatz Deutsch, KCR provided residential services to such individuals, thus giving them access to social, cultural, educational and vocational activities. Having a convenient and safe location in an urban setting with diverse opportunities would allow them to grow to their fullest capabilities and lead fulfilling lives. It was a simple idea that made KCR a pioneer.
KCR today operates in PA and NJ, serving 1300 people with autism and developmental disabilities every day in residential, day and vocational, supports coordination, and community based services.
“We are fortunate to have caring and dedicated staff who every day strive to make KCR a great place to work and live,” stated Laura Brown-Yadlosky, President and CEO of KCR.
We will continue to work on our mission to serve people with autism and intellectual disabilities by Celebrating 55 years of Caring, since 1964 together.
