Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Adults with disabilities have aged out of the public school transition program and often struggle to find a new schedule that is beneficial to them and their families. CPPC provides a unique and impactful day program for adults with disabilities. Often there is a perception that government benefits provide for the needs of the disabled population. This is a fallacy. Of our current enrollment, 61% receive benefits to pay their program fees, 39% are private-pay. However, these fees combined, fund less than 25% of our operating costs. The remaining 75% of CPPC’s budget comes from private donation

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision says it best: We dream of a day when society recognizes that all adults of all abilities have purpose and value. CPPC has program activities to help nature independence through impactful educational, social, recreational, and vocational initiatives. Monday - Friday, our Teammates grow through a curriculum based on Communication, Activities of Daily Living, Pre-Vocational, and Social Skill development. In partnership with families and guardians, we develop individual goals for each Teammate. We employ a variety of instruction methods to address the variety of ways our Teammates learn.

Ultimately, our goal is to come together with teammates and their families to foster independence through impactful educational, social, recreational, and vocational initiatives.

Our program is unique:
On Tuesdays we go on an outing in the community. Recent destinations have included the Dallas Museum of Art, the Arboretum, the Dallas Children's Theatre, and the Tolleson Center. Each Thursday we enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. These outings provide stimulating experiences and social interactions. On Fridays, Teammates enjoy a lunch they create. Preparations begin with selecting the menu and making a shopping list. Teammates shop for the ingredients and pay for it in self-check-out. Teammates are encouraged to customize their serving as well as practice measuring healthy portions.

Each week, a variety of other activities are led by our staff, outside professionals, and passionate volunteers. These activities include music therapy, yoga, improv workshop, exercise, and art. Interaction with the volunteers provides practice in appropriate social interactions. Our staff dedicates themselves to making each day at CPPC worthwhile and rewarding for our teammates. In addition to the individuals enrolled, we serve their families and guardians by sharing in the responsibility for providing individualized care for their loved ones.

CPPC has weekly check-ins, goals, and meets with teammates and their families to ensure that each individualized service plan is accurate, effective, and appropriate for each teammate. We also have a wonderful staff who works hard to ensure each day is filled with activities to meet teammate's goals.

Since 2016, we have met so many great teammates and their families. Seeing personalities shine and skills develop .....
