Supporting CP on SI: Community Partners and Events
Staten Island is a borough where the CP Unlimited mission has always had deep roots- and we are always working to expand our impact.
Over the past weekend, we enjoyed two events that both spotlighted our long-held influence and gave us an opportunity to meet even more local folks. CP’s Community Liaison on Staten Island, Antoinette Lawrence, attended each program to introduce our services.
On Friday, CP Unlimited was the organization of choice at the Commons Café, a local restaurant that channels daily profits to different non-profits making a difference. Opened by The Nicotra Group, Staten Island’s largest private real estate developers, the café has been a mainstay helping organizations on the Island help others.
Over 150 patrons enjoyed lunch- and supported CP Unlimited’s mission to help people with I/DD achieve fulfilling lives by extension!
The following day, CP Unlimited was featured at The Richard R. Hungerford School to spotlight our work on Staten Island and beyond. Close to (an additional) 100 neighbors learned about our history and services, alongside the diverse employment options facilitated for people with I/DD. Professional skill-building and community integration are key elements of our pre-vocational supports and the Agency is always looking to expand our many offerings.
The event was an opportunity for connection and we were proud to build further bridges to people who will benefit from our efforts.
