KenCrest was founded in 1905 by Sister Maria Roeck, a Lutheran deaconess in the Kensington mill district of Philadelphia. KenCrest served families with tuberculosis for their first 50 years when the disease was the number two cause of death in Philadelphia. Today, KenCrest provides community-based supports to more than 10,000 people from newborns to senior adults with intellectual disabilities and autism at over 400 sites in Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut served by nearly 2,000 staff members. KenCrest’s community-based supports include: preschool services, Head Start, community living, in-home services, homes for medically-fragile children, lifesharing, employment training and autism services.
