Our Story

KenCrest's mission is to provide services to individuals who have or at risk of having intellectual and developmental disabilities in a manner that respects individual rights, enhances potential and enables people to have control over their own lives.

KenCrest was founded in 1905. Since then, KenCrest has grown to become the largest provider of community based services in Southeastern Pennsylvania. EmployNet is KenCrest's network of employment options, focused on creating person-centered experiences that build bridges to community integration, nurturing career development and enhancing personal growth.

KenCrest Creations is the showcase for the artistic and beautiful handmade products made by both youth and adults participating in EmployNet's programs. Your KenCrest Creations purchase not only supports our programs but also the artisans themselves. A job represents more than just a way to make a living. It is also a path to building self esteem, self sufficiency and full participation in the world. Your support makes it possible for people with disabilities to enjoy the rewards of work.

Thank you for your support. For more information about KenCrest and the work we do, please visit our website,
