The Keon Center is a non-profit agency that has been serving the Westchester area since 1954. The organization was incepted by a group of concerned parents and citizens in order to address the needs of children with disabilities who were not provided for by the State education system. The founders started out by providing classes and specialized training for individuals with disabilities on a free tuition basis. It is believed that this was the first parent-operated class in the State of New York. The original classes included students up to 30 years of age, and produced items such as leather belts, purses, wallets and hats, all of which were sold to raise money for more supplies.
In 1962 the organization moved into its own building in Montrose, NY. The school was dedicated on June 10, 1962, and was named the Edward J. Keon Sr. Memorial School. The School moved several times after outgrowing this building, and its services expanded to serve a broad spectrum of clients and disabilities.
From its limited parent-operated beginning for children without a place in the State education system, the agency has consistently expanded its services to disabled adults in a vocational setting and today provides a number of services including diagnostic vocational evaluations, job placement, individual and group counseling, and much more.
The Keon Center invites you to enjoy a lively day of fun, recreation and good food while helping to support their critical mission.
