Who We Are
McCAP is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves young adults with severe and profound disabilities. With a 2:1 student to staff ratio, each participant is encouraged and supported to reach their full potential and improve the quality of life. The day program provides academic, social and vocational activities focusing on improving their daily living skills and independence.
McCAP (McHenry County Adult Program) was founded in 2001 by a group of parents who felt strongly that a specialized ALP should be available within the county. The group founded McCAP as a vehicle to establish a meaningful learning experience that would enrich and expand the lives of their children within the community. It began as a summer pilot in 2002, and has developed into a part- time, year-round endeavor. The program is not currently receiving any local, State, or federal funds and is being funded through tuition, donations and grants.
To become an established full-time therapeutic day program to provide adequate services for these special individuals. McCAP is hoping to incorporate physical, occupational and speech therapeutic services for members.
