KEEN Education Foundation

Bridging the gap of exceptional needs people and their lives through education

The K.E.E.N. Foundation was established in 1996 and has significant experience in delivering and implementing various projects and resources. For instance, the organization initiated a library in Pine Street Elementary School, Sherwood Park, for students with disabilities, provided computers and equipment for challenged special needs students in and around Strathcona County; initiated a “Spell Down” event to raise awareness and funds for special needs individuals within Sherwood Park; and organized a Teddy Bear picnic to raise funds that support enhanced growth and education in the lives of persons with disabilities.

Some Good Causes

Help for Employment

We help employers understand the differences, strengths, gifts and challenges of neurodiverse people so they can find the best fit for employees with these needs. Additionally, we help the neurodiverse individuals present themselves to potential employers and find the positions that they are best suited for.

Housing issues addressed

We help landlords understand the unique challenges that individuals with neurodiversity and physical challenges face so they can better assess their needs, and create a better placement. Through these methods, we hope to ensure that they will stay in a suitable home for a longer period of time.

Online Education

We strive to provide and promote access to education online for individuals with neurodiversity and physical challenges, and for potential employers. Online education can be health conscious solution for individuals with physical abilities and neurodiversity. It also gives the advantage of being able to record classes, and it can reduce social anxiety by making questions and answers a less confrontational process.

Specialized Counselling

We strive to promote and provide specialized counselling that is specific to special needs children, adults and parents.

Attitudinal Healing

We strive to teach and develop Attitudinal Healing, a form of healing that is based on the belief that it is possible to choose peace rather than conflict, and love rather than fear. It is love that is the most important healing force in the world.
