I submitted the paperwork for my disabled daughter to be a client. She was sent a letter, which was dated a month before it arrived, which stated that Ken's Krew would not be able to provide her with services. I sent an email and asked why and was told, in writing, by a staff member, that they would not provide their reasons. I then asked if I might speak with someone else.I got an email from the ED which stated that it was their decision, they would not provide any information, and the case was closed. I asked the ED if I might speak with the Board and my request was ignored. This is an organization that takes charitable donations yet they will not provide information about the criteria they use to make decisions about who they serve and who they don't serve and would not provide me with access to the Board. I find their behavior concerning and wonder if their practices of not providing information about their criteria for accepting clients is allowable under law. As a taxpayer, I believe that I am entitled to that information and entitled to a communication with their Board.

Typically when a child is graduating High School, it is a joyous occasion with so many possibilities, but when that young person has a developmental disability, the possibilities are limited and it is an extremely frightening time for him/her and the family. Fortunately, we discovered Ken's Krew. Wihout them, I'm not so sure that my son would be as successful as he is today. My son is now 24 and working! He loves his job, his co-workers and his Ken's Krew coaches. They are there to support him if he needs help. Ken's Krew is an amazing Organization.
