Need an internship, volunteer experience or job? Or interested in learning more about CCRI?

Come to this “Featured Employer: CCRI” Event!

Creative Care for Reaching Independence (CCRI) has a long history of providing person-centered services to people with disabilities. We were founded in 1977 by a group of forward-looking parents who had similar dreams for their sons and daughters. For this group of parents, CCRI provided a family-like setting where their children were given the opportunity and encouragement to be participants in the community. They knew that participation was the key to acceptance. Through the years, CCRI has developed into more than a place to call home. We encourage the people we support to dream and take great pride in their accomplishments. Our role is to provide the necessary supports to build the foundation for their success and to celebrate the steps along the way. Whether it is the work of one, or the work of many, we truly make a difference in the lives of those we support. Our team members are passionate about fulfilling CCRI’s mission of enhancing and enriching the lives and learning of people with disabilities. Their enthusiasm and dedication is second to none.
