Become a Volunteer
Through the efforts of our volunteers, we are truly able to enhance the lives of those we support. Volunteers ensure our life-enriching programs such as the Adaptive Softball League, prom, talent show, and annual Thanksgiving dinner are the best they can be.
Volunteers help with serving on various committees, creating amazing backdrops for our talent show and prom, cooking/preparing meals for events, landscaping, assisting with fundraisers, and everything in between.
The value that volunteers provide to CCRI is unmeasurable. Your talents might be just what we need to further our mission.

Tips for Writing Letters and Sending EmailsRead More
- Keep them short. They should be one page if possible.
- Write about a specific bill if possible. First say a little bit about the bill and include the number of the bill. If the bill has an official name or a commonly used name, use that too. (For example: the Waiting List Bill, the bill for more housing money for people with disabilities).
- Talk about only one bill or issue in your letter or e-mail. If you write on more than one topic, some of your topics may not get noticed. If you want to write on several issues, write a separate letter or email for each issue.
- Put your letter or e-mail in your own words.
- Say why you are interested in the bill and how the bill affects you.
- Ask the legislator (or Governor) to contact you to discuss the bill. Include your name, address, phone number, and e-mail.
- Thank your legislator (or Governor) for considering your position, and ask them to reply to you.
