Our Mission

Connecting Point of Park Cities provides an inclusive day program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) by fostering independence through impactful educational, social, recreational, and vocational initiatives.


In 2005, JoAnn’s son Ryan son suffered a traumatic brain injury due to a ski accident. The local high school provided the special services Ryan needed, until he aged-out at 21. The search for a similar exceptional day program was a challenge. This discovery inspired JoAnn to reach out to other concerned parents and professionals to form a board of directors who shared her vision. Together they created a local, quality, stimulating, all-inclusive day program available for adults with disabilities. With the goal to connect these adults with their community and with a variety of enriching opportunities, the name Connecting Point of Park Cities was chosen. After years of planning and fundraising, the doors of Connecting Point opened on June 24, 2014.


Connecting Point of Park Cities (CPPC)provides a community-based day program for individuals who have aged out of public schools. Each weekday, we welcome individuals with a variety of abilities to grow through a curriculum based on Communication, Activities of Daily Living and Pre-vocational and Social Skill development. Working in partnership with their family we develop individual goals for each Teammate(participant).

We are different. We are small by design with an experienced staff committed to making each day at CPPC engaging and rewarding.
