|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 www.relocate.org as one of several Charleston community businesses. To view our video, click here.
Our Residential Services Director, Jenny Munro, appeared on an episode of WEIU Television's Paw Report. The segment featured Jenny's dog, Daisy. Daisy is a service animal that assists Jenny's son at school and visits CCAR when school is out of session. To watch episode #210 of the Paw Report, click here.
