Creating Opportunities...Enriching Lives

Our Story

Koinonia (coin-o-NEE-yah) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides residential, vocational and career services to people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) throughout Northeast Ohio.

We focus first on the person, and not the disability. Koinonia Homes' service philosophy is “person centered” which means that we provide housing, skill development, and a social environment based on the individual needs and desires of our customers and their families. We do not expect our clients to fit into a pre-established “program” that may not meet their special needs or personal desires. Koinonia believes everyone deserves to live and work in a positive atmosphere. A positive culture is an intentional way that we partner with our individuals to focus on creating healthy relationships and recognizing that all of us have unique gifts. We believe our actions should focus on affirmation, unconditional acceptance and encouragement, and we do our best to base all of our daily interactions and practices on these things.

Our mission is partnering with people who have developmental disabilities to achieve healthy, fulfilling, enriched lives.
