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

For more than 65 years, the Center for Disability Services has been the place to turn to for innovative services and expert care for individuals with disabilities and chronic medical conditions in the Capital Region.

The purpose of this web site is to introduce you to the Center, and more importantly, the people we serve.

We provide services to more than 15,000 individuals -newborns to seniors - and their families at 85 locations throughout 9 counties in Upstate New York. As a vital community resource, we reach out to individuals, families and caregivers from all over upstate New York - and 26 additional states - offering care that, in many cases, can be found nowhere else.

We are committed to the well-being of the people we serve, while providing opportunities that lead to independent lifestyles.
