CPS adapts to changes, gives back

As you can imagine, things are a little different for trainees in Community Participation Support (CPS) at the Center for Industrial Training (CIT) right now.

But, rest assured, these changes haven’t dampened the enthusiasm of the trainees and CPS crews.

“It’s definitely different, it looks different,” Heather, who manages the CPS crews at CIT, says. “I’m so proud of this program! Everyone has come so far and works hard to stay safe.”

Because of your support, trainees continue to volunteer locally.

“Even though we aren’t going in to some places or interacting directly with people,” Heather says, “we can do work on our own.”

They scrub cages for PAWS, create books and decorate journals for Caitlin’s Smiles, do laundry at Canine Rescue in Dillsburg, and clean up at local parks.

Residents near Willow Park in Camp Hill recently complimented CPS crews who regularly volunteer there. “It’s really nice that people have taken notice to the work the individuals do.”

“There’s so much that we still want to do!”
