Our community and philanthropic involvement is deep-seated and dates back decades. Our founder, Charles Kaman, and his wife Roberta (Robbie) founded the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation more than fifty years ago. Fidelco, the only guide dog school in New England, breeds and trains German shepards to promote increased independence to men and women who are blind. The program is led by the Kamans' Fidelco-pioneered In-Community Placement in the United States; a process that allows guide dog users to be trained in the communities where they live and work. Kaman Corporation remains a proud sponsor of the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation in memory of Charles and Robbie Kaman.
