Connecticut Key Human Services Mission
The mission of Key Human Services is to act as a change agent, creating opportunities that encourage growth and meaningful life choices, while assisting persons in finding home, health, friends, work and presence in their communities.
Key Human Services was established in 1989 as a subsidiary of Keystone Human Services after Keystone was asked to help with the closing of the Mansfield Training School. Key opened three Community Living Arrangements, serving eight people. Since then, the organization has grown from one employee to over 300 and expanded to include other Community Living Arrangements, autism services, Supported Home placements, nursing services, Individualized Home Support, Individualized Day Support and Birth to Three services.
Located in Wethersfield, Connecticut, Key has become known as a great place to work and has built a reputation for finding, teaching, and promoting quality staff. All of Key’s employees receive intensive and ongoing education in Key’s policies and procedures so they can provide the best, most effective services and support to the individuals they serve. Each program director runs his or her program with full responsibility for hiring new employees, administering the program budget, and taking a lead role in program development.
