Welcome to The Family Group Page

In this new section you will find information about The Family Group including its activities, events and programs.

The Family Group recently sponsored a presentation by the Center’s President & CEO Alan Krafchin and COO & CFO Gregory Sorrentino about the State of the Center in today’s changing fiscal and regulatory environment. The YouTube video of this meeting, which was held November 13, 2017, is available by clicking here .

In 2018, we are working on programs which include: Meeting with Congressman Paul Tonko to share our ideas with him regarding how the federal government may improve supports for our family members (planned for February) and having a representative from the State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities describe and answer questions about the new Coordinated Assessment System (CAS) requirement.

All families and care partners of people receiving services from the Center for Disability Services and its four divisions: Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center, Life Quality Solutions Incubator, Prospect Center in Queensbury and St. Margaret’s Center, are considered members of The Family Group. It is our desire to expand our e-contact list to reach as many families as possible with news about our activities. Please leave your name(s) and email address and the service(s), e.g., Medicaid Service Coordination, Adult Day Program, Langan School, St. Margaret’s, community habilitation, residential, etc., which your family member is receiving from the Center in our designated Mailbox (see below). You may also leave a message about any programs/events you would like to see and your interest in starting/joining a support group for families of a specific program.
