MCS ROAR 2021
Meaningful Community Services at Kennedy Krieger Institute provides several programs for individuals with disabilities who are transitioning into adulthood. We are committed to the Neurodiversity in the Workplace Initiative by helping individuals with disabilities obtain and maintain meaningful employment and community engagement through a personcentered approach. Project SEARCH is a 10-month,transition program for individuals 18 through 24 years of age that provides hands-on job training and the opportunity to learn employability skills through participation in a variety of workplace experiences. CORE Foundations provides individuals of all abilities with the opportunity and education to continue developing core skills that are the foundation for a successful adult life. A customized program is developed in partnership with each individual to support their independence. The money we raise from ROAR will be used to enhance our programming and allow us to provide meaningful and person-centered services for all of our community members. We appreciate your support!
About ROAR for Kids
As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and to keep our community safe, ROAR for Kids 2021 is again going to be a virtual fundraising experience, but with some added fun!
As we enter our second year unable to host a traditional event, we approach 2021 with innovation and creativity, bringing to this year new experiences and opportunities! This year, ROAR will be a hybrid event, allowing participants, patients and families to come together online and, for just a moment, in person. ROAR will kick off with a drive-through event for our patients and families to celebrate, followed by a weeklong schedule of virtual events, and ending with our virtual walk/run on Saturday, May 22. Thank you for joining us as we raise much-needed funds for research and programs to help kids at Kennedy Krieger Institute.
