Mission & History

 

Mission

 

The Cura Personalis Project strives to provide a range of pre-vocational and vocational experiences to individuals with developmental disabilities. Through workshops, field experiences and daily work experiences, CPP provides training, mentoring and supervision to support individualized vocational, social and functional life skills necessary for individuals to reach their potential during their adult lives.

 

 

History

 

CPP started as a pilot program in July 2014 with two participants who were receiving support through MD DDA self-directed funding. Needing a program that provided them with a meaningful day plus mentoring and support for direct care staff, CPP was created. Cura Personalis Project teaches individuals with developmental disabilities vocational, social and life skills based on the individual's abilities, interests and personal goals. Meeting five days a week at a local stable in Montgomery County MD, the project now supports a small group of young adults from MD, VA and DC who perform animal care, gardening and property maintenance tasks. Additionally, the group engages in various recreation and community events throughout the county.

     Cura Personalis Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-sectarian organization.
