Read our top tips for finding employment opportunities for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
We help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities live more meaningful, self-determined lives within their communities through our unique day programs.
What We Do:
Discover CMA eAcademy
CMA eAcademy training and work program develops skills for meaningful employment in the field of e-commerce for the program attendees. The charity boutique housed on eBay sells books, art and sports memorabilia at great prices.
How it Works:
CMA solicits donated goods from our network and the broader community. Items are cataloged through an established process in a work training site and warehouse donated to us by the Bellmore-Merrick school district and at the main office in Westbury. Participants work with job coaches to pick up, catalog, and sort donated items; describe, photograph, competitively price and list the items on our eBay shop; monitor buyers; process payments; package, ship and track deliveries; offer customer support as well as provide personal thank you letters to both donors and buyers.
