Kulanu Center Believes in Inclusion

Inclusion, it’s a wonderful thing. Knowing that despite ability or disability you belong. Today while doing a Google search for disability news I found the Kulanu’s website (www.kulanukids.org). I was immediately intrigued. How did the Kulanu Center come to be? What sorts of services do they provide? I wanted to learn more, so I looked around their website a bit (http://kulanukids.org).

The Kulanu Center for Special Services was founded in 2000 by the parents of children with disabilities. These children had been repeatedly excluded from educational, social and even cultural activities and opportunities within the Jewish community. With the help of the community and Orthodox Caucus the Center was created.

Now the Kulanu Center is a busy place. It provides respite, camp programs, advocacy, and more. Kulanu helps children with a wide range of disabilities from Down’s syndrome, Asperger’s to children who are physically challenged. Kulanu means “all of us.”¬† In the realm of inclusive atmospheres it would appear Kulanu lives up to its name.
