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. Care, Compassion, Acceptance and Respect are the heart of our services.

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.


Help Us Make Dreams Come True!

Throughout October and November, we are asking you to help us make a difference in the lives of over 300 adults and children who we serve each year. Our goal is to turn dreams into reality by raising $20,100 by November 30th. The funds raised will help us provide year-round activities that aren’t otherwise funded for our programs and that many program participants and families can’t afford to pay out-of-pocket. When every amount on the wall has been donated (with no individual donation exceeding $200), we will reach our goal!
