Who We Affect
Are invited to see how they can contribute to the community and how the community can support them.
Include support people of those with developmental disabilities as well as broader community members.
Attend our bi-monthly meetings for support and information.
Share experiences and learnings beneficial for our adult children.
Use and build upon the Community network.
Volunteer your experience and energy to help in a small or larger capacity.
Our approach spans three pillars - Social, Home and Resources. Support Agencies are companies, agencies, schools, churches and other organizations that provide support through financial aid, services in kind and personnel.
In addition to funding, Support Agencies may provide free or discounted social activities, program material or staff access. Any support helps us meet our goals.
Volunteers / Families
You do not need to have a family member with a developmental disability to volunteer with The Community Oak Park. We have been blessed with a number of committed friends or colleagues who are investing their time, knowledge and connections to help us grow. Many hands make light work.
Individuals with a Developmental Disability
Our family members with varying degrees of support, needs and offerings are the core of The Community Oak Park’s focus.
Their profiles can be diverse:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Acquired Brain Injuries
Mild to profound intellectual disabilities
Multi-diagnosed with hearing, speech, mobility and cognitive challenges
