Partnering with people who have developmental disabilities to achieve, healthy, fulfilling, enriched lives.

When Koinonia Homes, Inc. first opened its doors in 1974 to eight women at Leans House, supporters believed that with guidance and assistance, individuals with I/DD could participate in everyday community life and be contributing citizens in a meaningful way. Since then, Koinonia has grown exponentially, increasing the types of services provided and the number of people served. In 2006, Koinonia opened Koinonia Enterprises where day programming needs are met and employment skills are taught. Click here for additional history.

Koinonia is supported through Medicaid, funding from the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities, private pay and donations.
