Community Access Unlimited (CAU) is a non-profit, IRS designated 501 (c)(3) human services agency that provides support services for youth and adults with disabilities. Our mission is to provide community access through effective and comprehensive support services for at-risk youth and individuals with disabilities, giving them the opportunity to live independently and to lead normal and productive lives as citizens integrated into the community. CAU also takes on the challenge of developing affordable housing.
CAU provides supports and gives a voice to adults and youth who traditionally have had little support and no voice in society. We help people with housing, life skills training, employment skills, health maintenance, money management, socialization, education, crisis intervention, civic activities, behavioral support, transportation assistance and community support. CAU also supports opportunities for advocacy through training in assertiveness, decision making, and civil rights.
We are the only agency in Union County that provides a complete and comprehensive continuum of care for people with developmental disabilities and youth in New Jersey’s child welfare system and we are one of the few statewide agencies to provide support coordination and in-home supports. We provide more all-encompassing residential and support services than any other organization of its kind.
