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
