About us

Karina Association, founded in March 2009, is a non-profit organization headquartered in Timonium, Maryland.  Karina serves families in Baltimore City and surrounding counties. A vital role of Karina is building acceptance and inclusion for those who are disabled in a society where most people take inclusion for granted. K.A.R.I.N.A. stands for Knowledge, Awareness, Recognition, Inclusion, Nurturance and Acceptance. Each of these factors plays an important part in our strategy to raise the conscience of society to integrate people with disabilities into the community.


We have created an organization that services youth and adults with or without disability by giving them the resources to live a fulfilled and successful life. We would like parents to be at peace and know that their children have the tools to dictate their own fate. We need the passionate and empathetic hearts of others to achieve our mission. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of these individuals and their families, please join us in our cause.

Karina Association is committed to providing an environment that is free from discrimination in employment and opportunity because of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, disability, gender, sexual orientation and age.
