WHO WE ARE
CO-OP is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization dedicated to supporting individuals with developmental and other disabilities become valued members of their communities. Our services are person-centered, embracing the vision, interests and support needs of each person.
Established in 1972, CO-OP has undergone many changes – most notably the growth and development of wide-ranging new programs and services to address the needs of local citizens with disabilities. Throughout all of these changes, we have relied on the support of our many local partners and resources to help fulfill the agency’s goal of full community inclusion for all of us.
Today, CO-OP serves adults and transition-age students through a diverse menu of programs and clinical services, including residential and employment supports and a variety of day program activities. All of our services build upon individual strengths, interests, and cultural experiences – and enhance skills that help promote community participation.
Our funding partners include the Massachusetts Division of Medical Assistance (DMA), the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS), the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, local schools systems, and other state agencies. Private party reimbursement is also an option. Most referrals are coordinated through these organizations but direct inquiries are also encouraged.
