CCAR Brochure

We are a not-for–profit human services agency that provides a variety of supports to persons with disabilities and their families in East Central Illinois. Our agency was started in 1969 by a group of committed parents who wanted to improve the quality and number of services available to their children. We’ve continued that commitment and currently provide: Early Intervention, Developmental Training, Vocational Training/Placement, Client & Family Support, and Residential Services. In addition, we provide jobs for individuals with disabilities through industrial and janitorial contracting, in addition to performing paper recycling.

As a community agency, we always welcome feedback and suggestions. Please feel free to contact us or view our FAQ.

Did you know that CCAR Industries has a promotional video?  This fall, the agency contracted with CGI Communications to create a video that highlights our programs and services. CGI photographers visited agency and community locations to capture consumers and staff in action. This video will be posted on the Charleston Chamber of Commerce website and on as one of several Charleston community businesses.  To view our video, click here.

The Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the City of Charleston and the Riot Committee, sponsored a "Looking for Lincoln's Hat" contest.  Entrants were asked to design a hat that represented their business, the history of Charleston, and the "spirit and character of Lincoln".  Program consumers and staff from the CCAR Manufacturing Plant entered this contest.  The display is located on the north side of the Charleston Square in the former Marianne's Deli.  To view photos and a description, click here.
