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.
|Arthur dreams of owning a farm. Through the insight and passion of his parents, Susan and Gary, and the support of Arthur’s CAU Support Coordinator, Arthur is moving toward fulfilling that dream
Arthur’s parents Susan and Gary founded Life with Joy, Inc., and alternative farming program in Sussex County that teaches farming, cooking, and other skills. Through the program, Arthur can work in a personalized environment that helps him improve his skills. For instance, he needs quiet to concentrate, loves to dig and pick at small objects and enjoys mixing and chopping. Arthur enjoys being a part of Life with Joy, Inc. and he’s learning farming skills every day, like how to work with animals, grow vegetables, and flowers.
By matching Arthur to the right service providers and maximizes natural resources, his CAU Support Coordinator builds an ongoing plan for Arthur that defines his goals and helps him achieve them. Susan and Gary are grateful to CAU for assisting Arthur in living a full life.
“CAU has helped us give Arthur a career, social life, and future,” Susan said. “They help us see that each plan for each individual person can be realized.”
