Mission Statement

Our mission is to build brighter futures for children and adults with disabilities. We do this by providing comprehensive medical rehabilitation and employment placement services. We specialize in helping children and adults with complex disabilities, such as spinal cord injury, brain injury and stroke, achieve their greatest level of independence for participation in home, school or work and in the community.

Description

We are the area's only provider of both medical rehabilitation and employment services. RIKC is known as the "place-to-go" for complex neurological and life altering disabilities.

Our Adult and Pediatric Medical Rehabilitation Program help individuals who have experienced an injury or illness that has had a significant impact on physical and/or cognitive function regain lost abilities or learn new skills needed to be self-sufficient and engage in family, work and community life. Through day program services and outpatient therapy our program provides services to address the immediate and long-term medical rehabilitation needs. A state-of-the-art facility with a large therapy gym, independent living apartment and advanced technology help individuals achieve their goals.

Our employment services program helps adults with disabilities enter the workforce for the first-time or return to work following a debilitating injury or illness. The program helps individuals with disabilities identify their job skills, address barriers to employment, gain job seeking skills and secure and maintain employment.
