Get Social

1KR: What & Who:



One Kin Roof is a unique and innovative approach to integrating adults with disabilities into the community through a proven and systematic technique. We envision a vibrant group of people from every walk of life overflowing with fun and the feeling of belonging! Seeking the sturdiness of a tripod like approach, incorporating the untapped potential of University students, distinguished/retired adults, and structured activities within a plethora of established business partnerships. Our University program will provide for a mutually beneficial relationship, allowing students seeking degrees in several related fields to fulfill required credits. The distinguished residents will add wisdom, experience, and advice, and in return, they will be rewarded with an added sense of purpose and productivity. Our volunteers will act as liaisons to support these growing relationships within a variety of activities throughout the community.

We ultimately believe that when everyone is included, only then can everyone realize their greatest potential. As a result of our endeavors, we intend to raise awareness and create a "butterfly effect" thus allowing small changes to ultimately affect society's continually evolving opinion of those with different abilities

Where:



For the past year we have hosted an array of activities all over the Tampa Bay Area, including:

  • Painting
  • Concerts
  • Karaoke
  • Dinner and conversation
  • Coffee and board games
  • Parties


As AKV, and these university partnerships materialize, we will become more localized. Our upcoming schedule is listed below, we would love to have anyone join us!

Why:



Close your eyes for a moment and picture your life and everything good in it. What do you see? Joy or happiness, a sense of purpose, sharing time with friends? Now imagine your life with no friends, other than family. Not. even. one. A little less colorful, perhaps? This is often the life of the dis-abled, or elderly as their lives are inundated with service providers, therapy, caregivers, and other forms of paid staff. We see an opportunity to facilitate relationships that often are not existent due to barriers: both real limitations like an inability to speak, and imagined ones from personal fears based on lack of experience. Through the weaving together of different abilities, both parties are made stronger. Elderly and adults with disabilities experience increased self worth, confidence and a reduction of “problem behaviors”, while their ‘givers’ receive the ultimate gifts of worthiness, increased capability, and intrinsic happiness. This is the power of connection, arguably the reason we are here!

As Dr. Suess so clearly stated, “To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.”
