The Key's History
The Key Training Center was established in 1966 to unlock and open the door of opportunity for people with developmental disabilities.
Historically, expansion of Key Center programs and services was driven by a consistently increasing need within the local community. The expansion also was driven by the agency’s fundamental belief that programs and services should be available to all developmentally disabled people who need them.
The expansion, however, was possible because the Key Center enjoyed steadfast community support in Citrus County. As a community, Citrus County residents embraced, with compassion, the developmentally disabled as full-citizen partners.
The Key Center has been recognized as a leader and innovator in initiatives associated with improving the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities and has grown to serve about 1,300 clients since it began.
