Central Aroostook Association has proudly been serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities for over 60 years. The Association was founded by a group of parents who felt that their children deserved to be educated, employed, and live in their own communities; so they created that opportunity. We have grown from our humble beginnings, each year we service hundreds of individuals throughout Aroostook County in eight different programs. Thanks to the Board of Directors, our dedicated staff, parents, and the community; we continue to work towards providing better opportunities to the individuals we serve.   – Stephen D. Richard, Executive Director

At Central Aroostook Association we feel that it is important to recognize staff who embrace the BELIEVE core values and apply them to their work every day. We are pleased to recognize staff members who embody what BELIEVE is about. These individuals give 100% to their job, serve as positive role models for their peers, and enhance the lives of the individuals they work with.This October we are recognizing Joy Charette Joy works very hard to show up to work every day, even when she should not, just because she knows she is needed. This year she has had to change roles and be very flexible from week to week, changing where she is and what she is doing daily. It is out of her comfort zone but does it to help the Association, the staff, and most importantly the people we serve. She is always trying to think of innovative ways to get things done and make things easier for everyone it affects. Thank you for everything you do Joy! Central Aroostook Association is beyond grateful for you!
