Center for Independent Achievement
The Center for Independent Achievement (CIA) provides day program services and vocational training to 60+ adults with developmental disabilities. CIA is built on the philosophy that every individual deserves to participate in a meaningful work day in order to promote dignity and self worth. Individuals are matched with specific activities that correspond to their skill and interest level.
CIA promotes teaching independent work skills, community integration and development of social relationships. The Center for Independent Achievement clients participate in a variety of work experiences such as car washing, gardening, janitorial work, shredding services, flyer distribution, and retail support.
In 2009, we had the opportunity to move to our current location on East Lexington Ave in downtown El Cajon. This new facility has provided the needed space and resources to be able to expand the Day Program to accept more clients, as well as offer more vocational programs.
Our Day Program is open from 8am-2pm (Monday-Friday).
