Background & Philosophy
CPC was established in 2009 by a team of human service professionals who after many years in the field felt strongly that more needed to be done as we work to improve the way we deliver support services to our consumers; those consumers dealing with a variety of disabilities such as developmental, mental illness, chronic substance abuse, dual diagnosis, Acquired Brain Disorder and other physical limitations. We believe that meaningful and long lasting positive change must come from True Community Partnership, where society is fully involved, working together to achieve desired outcomes; assisting our loved ones with disabilities to achieve maximum independence and a chance to contribute to their communities. Our professionals believe strongly that the term “contribution” has to be more than sitting on the sideline watching celebrations, it does not mean admiring fire engines go by. It does not mean sitting back and enjoying wedding celebrations. Above all it does not mean just standing back and watching “things happen” to us. It means providing our consumers with the tools necessary to become those they admire most; medical technicians, police officers, fire fighters, teachers, giving them the chance to organize community activities as coordinators, and one day to participate in their own weddings. As an organization, we work hard to develop programs that are more targeted, individualized, practical, whose outcome is measurable and can meet the housing, vocational, educational, employment, health and social needs of our consumers while fostering maximum community participation. Community Partners for Change is committed to working in collaboration with all other stakeholders to seek input and provide the type of care that improves lives.
We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach when providing support services to our consumers. Our professionals are encouraged to take the time to build experiences tailored to each person we are fortunate enough to serve.
