Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
California Community Opportunities, Inc. (CCO) is a 501(c)(3) local organization that serves Developmentally Disabled adults. CCO’s primary mission is to provide a high quality solution for serving persons with severe to profound developmental disabilities being placed out of Agnews Developmental Center. CCO offers individuals the opportunity to live in their own homes in their Community and develop a lifestyle of their choice. Since CCO’s foundation in 2005, the organization has been able to expand and offer services to developmentally disabled adults not associated with the closure of Agnews Developmental Center.
The organization’s goal is to create an educational Day Services Program for the individuals served at CCO but also to disabled adults in the Bay Area. Once developmentally disabled individuals reach the age of 22, they are no longer eligible for special education services. CCO is looking to create an educational Day Services Program to offer to the men and women served by the organization, but also to other adults no longer eligible for school-aged services. It is our belief that with continued teaching, the individuals we serve gain greater independence, learn socially significant behaviors, and enhance their living experience in the Community.
