Community Options, Inc.

Community Options, Inc. is a pioneering, national nonprofit organization that has assisted thousands of people with disabilities to depart institutions, live in settings of their choice, achieve fiscal autonomy and explore recreational opportunities that foster self-esteem.  
COI is currently recruiting groups (businesses, corporations, college organizations, etc.) to participate in Project: CARE (Community Assisted Residence Enhancement). The program enables both members of the community and volunteers from local colleges and businesses to improve 
the quality of life for all of our residents living in COI group homes. Groups will volunteer for one full day helping paint the interior and do minor repairs throughout the inside and outside of the home. Must be 18 years of age or older and able to provide your own transportation 
to and from the event.  Previous experience with painting and home repair and maintenance is a definite plus, but in no way required. For more information or to send a donation of supplies or time, please call.  (609) 265-7749.
