The Community Access Program (CAP) offers a comprehensive array of person-centered supports to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families. CAP provides a full range of services, from family support to intensive 24-hour home and community supports, based on individual needs and goals developed by each individual's team.

CAP services promote the health and safety of individuals and families, and help individuals become valued and respected members of the community, build meaningful and mutually supportive relationships and social connections, and make choices and decisions that affect her or his life. Trained staff and contracted workers empower individuals to live as independently as possible, to obtain employment or engage in other meaningful activities, to participate in community life, and to engage in life-long learning.
Community Access Program Employment Supports
Employment services assist individuals to obtain gainful and competitive employment in the community based upon interests, abilities and career objectives. Supports are individualized with the emphasis on fostering natural supports and reduced paid supports wherever possible. Employment supports may be provided by CAP staff or by workers hired by a shared living provider or the individual's family.
