CCAR Industries is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that serves individuals with developmental disabilities in their homes, at work, and in the community. 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 founded in 1969 by a local parent’s organization and value that continued family involvement. 

We employ over 100, well-trained, and compassionate staff.  Our direct support personnel receive 120 hours of training upon hire while our professional staff are required to complete annual continuing education requirements.  Our staff members are fully background-checked and credentialed by the Illinois Department of Human Services. Recently receiving our 14th consecutive accreditation  from CARF International, our team is committed to excellence in service.  We take pride in providing quality services that promote independence and individual growth.
