Accessibility Statement


Dear Progressive Friends and Families;


On 3/16/2020 DDD clarified that all Day Programs are to shut down and remain closed until further notice in the interest of public health and safety.  This decision applies to all CEA locations and we will remain in compliance until directed otherwise.

We know and understand the difficulty this poses for so many of you and we want you to know that we will keep you apprised of all information as soon as we are aware.

As stated before, Administrative staff will be available remotely and will continue to conduct meetings via phone calls and email correspondence will continue.


We continue to wish you and your families health, safety and peace throughout this time.

~The Progressive Team
