What makes Community Access Naperville so special?  Our incredible team of helpers who befriend and guide our participants at each session!  We are grateful for all of our wonderful program leaders and program assistants, as well as the fantastic interns who earned credit towards their graduate and undergraduate degrees for their time spent working with our participants. 

We would like to extend a special Thank You to Alesha Wilson for her wonderful art sessions, and Thank You to Sharon Robson and Rozie Hornig for their delightful music sessions.  

Additionally, over the course of 2019, about 30 volunteers donated their time and energy to help out and get to know our participants.  Special Recognition goes to Logan Hartler for volunteering at CAN on a weekly basis.  Thank You, each and every volunteer, for your time, your help, and your friendship!
