Highland Park is Home

Keshet works tirelessly to create a community of belonging where people of all abilities can learn, play, work and live together. When we first set out to offer residential services for adults with disabilities in 2015, Highland Park was the ideal community with quality homes, friendly neighbors and easily accessible recreation, shopping and transportation. Since then, Keshet has added three other homes and now supports 18 adults who call Highland Park home.

Keshet’s residential program is supported through State funding and private donors, including the generosity and on-going commitment of the Highland Park Community Foundation. HPCF’s partnership has enabled Keshet to continually enhance the programs and services offered to our residents and other disabled adults in the area.

Our connection to Highland Park and HPCF will flourish in 2024. In addition to adding two more residents, Keshet’s adult day services moved from Skokie to Highland Park in the first week of January. Forty-six adults spend their days with Keshet engaging in community life; volunteering; exploring their interests; and participating in vocational training and employment.

As our programs in Highland Park continue to grow, we are looking for more adult volunteers who want to share their talents, job coaches and additional job opportunities for the most dedicated and reliable employees you can imagine.
