"Champlain Community Services first came on my radar when my son began working there in 2019.  It has been really interesting for me to learn all the ways in which CCS works to support folks with intellectual disabilities and autism in living their best life.  Their programs such as Way2Work which help connect and support folks with work opportunities really resonated with me.  For many of us, work provides a sense of purpose and meaning and the opportunity to contribute to something larger. Working alongside our co-workers, we build mutually supportive communities and there is great value in that. Certainly this is has been more challenging with COVID and perhaps we appreciate it even more.  I’m glad the supportive work of CCS helps open up those opportunities to more members of our community."
