CAU Mission Statement
Community Access Unlimited is committed to providing community access through a broad array of person-centered support services for adults and adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities, at-risk youth. and people with affordable housing needs giving them the opportunity to live independently and to lead normal and productive lives as citizens integrated into the community.
|Eugene likes to keep active and enjoy life. He is an artist and his home, where he lives with roommates, is decorated with his drawings. One of his works is also hanging at the Visual Art’s Center of New Jersey in Summit, an exhibit found for him by staff at CAU. “Art is fun,” he said. “If you worry about something or get upset about something, put it on paper.”
Eugene loves to dance, using it as a means of exercise. “My mother took me to see Madame Butterfly when I was young.” He said. “I thought, ‘Boy, she can dance.’ She didn’t touch the floor.” Eugene enables others to dance, as well, as a DJ. He frequently DJs at CAU hosted events. Travel also keeps him busy. Eugene has traveled to Sea World in Florida and Las Vegas and he enjoys trips to Atlantic City. “I’m not lazy,” he said. “I’m 67 years old and I like to be active. You have to move. If you don’t move, your bones are going to get old. I don’t want to be tied down.” And he rarely is.
How Can You Help
For 35 years, Community Access Unlimited has been supporting individuals with developmental disabilities, at-risk youth, and those who are in need of affordable housing achieve independence in the community. This would not be possible without the contributions of so many community supporters through our donation programs.
