KFI provides people with broad opportunities to go about their community, to use its resources, develop friendships and relationships, and valued roles. The service also provides training and opportunity in areas of personal growth such as home management skills, fitness and health, interpersonal relationships, pathway to employment (including volunteerism, job shadowing, discovery), and leisure pursuits.
Individuals within any KFI service area receive services out of their homes and in their own communities on an individual or small group basis; most people receive a combination of home-based and community-based services.
