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

Here at Central Aroostook Association, we stand by our mission and values. The founding parents of the Central Aroostook Association had a vision 63 years ago and every day we make sure to honor them as the Association grows and evolves each day!B e honest and transparentE ngage and EnergizeL istenI ncorporate AccountabilityE quality amongst programsV alue and respectE ncourage and Empowercentralaroostookassociation.com/?page_id=49#webelievetherearenolimits ...

This month's program highlight is - Adult ServicesAdult Services provides support to individuals to assist them with meeting their individualized goals, ensuring their safety, and providing assistance as needed. Program staff seek out community resources, including locations and activities, that match the interests of the individuals served and promote participation in an integrated community setting. Individuals have opportunities to develop skills in areas such as cooking; communication; self-expression and awareness; exposure to the arts and culture; work readiness; safety at home, work, and in the community; activities of daily living; and personal care and hygiene.Our program offers an array of activities both in the facility and community. Individualized programming is designed to foster the development of skills and appropriate behavior. Individuals work towards gaining greater independence, community inclusion, relationship building, self-advocacy, and informed choice. Individuals contribute to their community through volunteer work at the local food pantry, animal shelter, homeless shelter, and other opportunities.centralaroostookassociation.com/?page_id=223#webelievetherearenolimits ...
