CAU Mission Statement

|Tina was like any other young and energetic teenager in the community. She was active, involved in everything, had visions of college, and dreams or what she would do in the future. No stranger to CAU, Tina knew more than most about what the agency had to offer the community; her mother, Mercedes, is an Associate Executive Director at CAU. However, at age 16 Tina suffered a stroke. Changing her life forever, Tina and Mercedes never imagined their need to access the personal care supports offered by CAU would become invaluable and ongoing. It has now been almost 10 years since that life altering day. Today, with the help of caregivers and a lot of hard work, Tina can be found reading, writing, attending exercise classes, shopping at the mall, going out to dinner and the movies; most of the time walking with the use of a cane or assistance. Tina also has a business; Tina Tunes. An avid singer, she has sung for the Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey, at Horizon High School and for local nursing homes. Combining her love for singing with acting, Tina is a member of the CAU Community Players and has performed in several musicals including the most recent, Shrek the Musical Jr. Tina enjoys traveling for vacation and resides at home with her family.
