Welcome

CCAR Industries is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to provide community-based services and supports that enhance the quality of life of East Central Illinois citizens with developmental disabilities and/or other functional limitations throughout their lifespan.

We were originally founded in 1969 by a local parents’ organization that hoped to increase adult opportunities for their children who were leaving school. Over the past 50 years, we have experienced many challenges and achievements as we have grown to meet the ever-changing needs of those who we serve.  We continue to value the choices and input of individuals and their families.

If you have questions about our services, we’re always just a phone call or email away! Feel free to contact us at (217) 348-0127 or email us.


3K LINCOLN LAP FUN RUN/WALK

FUN FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

CCAR Industries will be hosting our FIRST EVER 3K Lincoln Lap Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, September 24th. This is a Lincoln-themed run that will start in front of Charleston City Hall and will loop through Charleston’s historic residential district, located along 6th and 7th Streets, with the race ending on the Charleston square. We hope that runners, walkers and spectators will wear their Lincoln-era finest to get into the spirit of this event and to showcase Charleston’s rich history. Runners and walkers will receive a race bib, “swag” bag, free snacks, and a commemorative medal.

There will be activities on the square following the race, including food for sale, live music, and games until 2:00 pm. The community is welcome to attend. In addition, the Charleston Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their Tour de Charleston bicycle race that morning.

All proceeds from CCAR’s 3K Lincoln Lap will assist with the cost of providing year-round services to individuals with developmental disabilities in our community!

If you have questions or would like to register for our run, please feel free to contact us.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our event!!
