Camphill Association of North America, Inc.
AmeriCorps National Education Awards Program FY 2011 (Continuation)
The Camphill AmeriCorps Program supports Camphill Communities in providing education, shared living, vocational training and work to people with developmental disabilities of all ages. Members work alongside others to provide direct care support to people in areas such as personal care, classroom/workshop support, home life, and social life. Over 450 people live in the 12 communities across the United States. This work is done in the context of life-sharing communities, rather than conventional group home settings.
