Our Mission:
To enable and empower people, primarily those with disabilities, to lead healthy & enriched lives.

For 75 years, the Center for Disability Services, known as the place where people get better at life, has been one of upstate New York’s largest providers of programs and services for individuals who have disabilities. Many of the innovative programs and vital services the Center offers are not available elsewhere. It has more than 80 locations throughout 15 counties and annually provides programs and resources to more than 12,000 infants, children, adolescents, adults and seniors who have many different disability diagnoses including cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, multiple sclerosis, autism spectrum disorders, epilepsy, spina bifida and traumatic brain injury. The Center for Disability Services, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, has four divisions: Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center, Life Quality Solutions Incubator, Prospect Center in Queensbury and St. Margaret’s Center. We are committed to the well-being of the people we serve, while providing opportunities which lead to independent lifestyles.
