Community Partnerships of Idaho (CPI) began in 1995 as a dream of a few friends who wanted to make a difference in the lives of children, teens and adults with disabilities. They were committed to "creating opportunities for people to learn and achieve their goals." This vision for services and adhering to their company values of Personal Dignity, Integrity, Innovation and Relationships, continues to guide their company to this day.
Community Partnerships of Idaho's largest office is the Emmett office. They have an adult center located at 608 S. Washington Ave. and a children's center at 315 S. Johns Ave. They have been serving participants in Emmett and surrounding areas since 1997.
Their 120 member staff serve and support 113 clients including 36 children and 50 adults in a number of programs. They also provide in-home supportive living services to 27 adults. They have expanded their services over the years to include providing employment services allowing adults an opportunity to work and build relationships with employers in the community.
Adult services were also added that allow adults with disabilities options to participate in community events and interact with peers. CPI offers supported living services for adults who want to live in their own homes and need assistance in their everyday life. They also have family trainings offering assistance to those who care for children, teens, and adults with disabilities.

Their business also includes a motorcycle section that offers a full line of repairs off street, ATV, snow, watercraft, and motorcycle repairs. With a full line of Western Power Sports (Fly Racing) gear, parts, and accessories.
Michael and Rosemary's goal is to purchase an alignment rack and paint booth to help in completing the restoration of classic vehicles. Emmett's Restoration Station is all about customer service and having the shop complete with all of the right equipment helps in keeping customer service at the top of their list. "Customers come first with full and flexible options," says Michael.
