Every Person is Connected (EPIC)

Every Person is Connected (EPIC)

Mission Statement: In 2015, the Town of New Castle formed the New Castle EPIC Committee – Every Person Is Connected – the sentiment is incorporated into our Mission and Core Belief.  This Committee shall report and make recommendations to the Town Board on the concerns of the Town’s residents with disabilities, provide updates on the Americans with Disabilities Act, and disseminate information on the Town’s recreational, educational and social programming to all age groups of residents with disabilities.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people with special needs by increasing awareness and promoting full inclusion in our community. We aspire to implement programs, services and opportunities in areas such as social, recreational, educational, vocational, transportation, training, housing and care services.

Core Belief: All people and their families have the right to live, love, work, plan and pursue their life aspirations in our community.

Primary Goals: We will be working on these three primary goals this year:

  • Social Inclusion in Town activities—recreational and otherwise
  • Growing employment opportunities with and within our local businesses
  • Spearheading development of the Chappaqua PAC as a hiring site for people with disabilities

Term of Office: Two years

Meetings Held: Second Tuesday of each month at 6:15 pm at the Hip-Kid Lounge
