CP Unlimited’s Day Habilitation programs are unique in their diversity and opportunities presented for our persons supported. No other Agency offers the variety and engagement as CP Unlimited and we are proud to share several of these initiatives and their impact.

In partnership with Smile Farms, the Agency supports two full-time employees and a rotating community of Day Hab participants to help plant, harvest, and distribute the crops from on-site greenhouses. They also work at local events to share and sell produce and hot sauces, offering opportunities for skill building and visibility alongside funding as the proceeds from the sauces help fund programs for people with I/DD.
“This partnership, due to the dedication and hard work of our individuals, is blossoming into additional opportunities that will provide a source of employment to even more of the people we support for years to come.” -Jessica Francese, Associate Director of Day Services and Vocational Initiatives
Ceramic Studio at West Farms
People supported enjoy the educational, social, and emotional benefits of working with clay at CP Unlimited’s ceramic studio in The Bronx.
Participants create objects d’art like bowls, mugs, cups or free form sculptures using a variety of techniques and fired in CP’s kiln—one of the only kilns in the entire borough, and we believe the only one available to people with I/DD— which turns them into a piece ready for a final glazing by artist.
