Creativity From Our Volunteers
Some of our most creative volunteers serve with CAA-- especially with the arts and music opportunities!

Nearly 900,000 people in New York City live with disabilities. Lack of accessible transportation and housing, unequal education, unemployment, and poor health care are among the common barriers people with disabilities face. Join us in praying on behalf of these neighbors of ours.
