Daniel Kelly, CEO
When Dan first came aboard in 1993, Community Quest, Inc. was a typical human service organization providing services to people with developmental disabilities and heavily reliant on funding from the State of New Jersey. Identifying new revenue streams became Dan’s ongoing focus. He knew that the company needed to diversify to thrive. In 2001 the company opened its first housing program that was not funded by the state, a HUD/Federal Home Loan Bank of NY funded independent living apartment in Cape May County.
Dan’s vision for the company took a leap forward in 2004. He identified the need to bring diversified funding sources to the company to become less reliant on funding from the State of New Jersey.
