Our Vocational and Recreational Program for
Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities
The first half of a day at Community Access Naperville (CAN), which meets at First
Congregational UCC Naperville, consists of vocational activities, which might include
collating, shredding, weeding, food repackaging, or creating products for CAN to
sell. Click here to learn more about the services that CAN offers to local businesses.
Our organization volunteers for other local non-profit organizations, including Sharing
Connections, West Suburban Community Pantry, the Naperville Public Library, the Naperville
Police Department, Enactus, Wellness House, First Congregational Church UCC Naperville,
Morton Arboretum, and the Naperville Park District. The second half of the day is
spent in the community, participating in activities such as exercising or swimming
at the YMCA, walking downtown to a local restaurant, visiting the library, bowling,
going to a movie, or hanging out at a park. The program is offered in a small group
setting to meet the needs of the participants. A professional life-skills instructor
leads each session, while volunteer peers help participants to participate fully
in all of the activities.
