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.
|Before coming to CAU, Ellen lived in a group home where she was unhappy and, by her own admission, misbehaving. CAU rescued her. Today Ellen lives independently in her own apartment within CAU’s Supported Living Apartment Program (SLAP) with the support of CAU staff. She has been recognized for her hard work at the agency’s Annual Awards Night celebration and for accomplishing many goals including giving up smoking, cleaning her apartment, learning to deal with anger, and writing up her own consult sheets for her doctors appointments. Ellen has even set a future goal, which is to learn to manage her finances. “It feels great,” she said. “It’s good to be recognized for all the hard work I put in.” Ellen also enjoys the recreation side of being a member at CAU. She enjoys going out to dinner and has been to a Yankees game. She also loves to walk and exercise. “I love being a member of CAU,” Ellen said. “I like my friends and meeting new people.”
