Day Hab Without Walls
CP Unlimited proudly participates in the OPWDD Day Habilitation Without Walls initiative throughout the five boroughs of New York City, offering persons-supported the ability to integrate into their local community by accessing and working at scheduled events and local programming through area businesses, libraries, parks, museums, cultural centers, and more. The goal is to prepare them for potential employment and impart independent life skills.
Currently, CP Unlimited supports more than eighty people in the program.
On our people: “They are very helping in assisting this organization achieve our goals…each of them perform their duties well. It must be stated that they also have a positive impact on VA staff. They are well mannered and courteous.” -Shawn Kingston, Director of CDCE at James J. Peters VA Hospital
“Each of our people have their goals to achieve and all of them try their best every day.” -Kadia Hibbert, Associate Director of Vocational Services
The Agency’s pre-vocational program provides diverse volunteer opportunities to develop professional skills with an outlook towards long-term employment. Our Independent Living Skills Trainers help persons supported by providing extensive job readiness training and following up with interested businesses.
Supported Employment (SEMP)
Once they are ready, our individuals work in a variety of settings, persons supported have been placed in government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, local auto showrooms, cinema chains, Amazon warehouses, printing companies, and area businesses. There are also in-Agency opportunities through Smile Farms, Securedoc.org, our Central office, and other platforms.
The Agency’s Job Development team also has a strong working relationship with ACCES-VR and their Vocational Counselors. As a result, we have several opportunities to provide a variety of services to people referred to us by ACCES-VR.
“What motivates me to come in every day is the ability to provide quality service to the people we support. We try to find creative ways to keep them engaged…What can we do to enhance their lives while they are here?”-Kwadwo Ofori, Director of Day Services
