  • Provide personalized, family-centered patient care to thousands of children each year
  • Offer specialized education to children with cognitive and physical disabilities
  • Offer vital resources and services to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities in the community

About Kennedy Krieger

Kennedy Krieger is a place like no other.

Kennedy Krieger is a place like no other. We are an inpatient pediatric specialty hospital. We are outpatient centers. We are schools and educators, researchers and advanced training centers. And we are home to numerous child- and family-focused community programs.

We’re many things to thousands of people, but all of them look a lot like hope. Over the last 83 years, Kennedy Krieger has evolved into an international leader in caring for children with neurodevelopmental disorders and injuries. We’re in the business of unlocking potential, one child at a time...all made possible by your generous support.
