Who We Are

For over 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. We are committed to the well-being of the people we support, while providing opportunities which lead to independent lifestyles. For a weekend, a week, or a lifetime, in your home or ours, the Center for Disability Services is here for you.

    Why I Love CFDS

    “We’ve always said since day one they’re like a second family…they take a lot of pressure off of you because you know she’s in a safe environment where she’s well cared-for, and I truly believe that that staff have love in their heart for every single child that they touch”

    Why I Love CFDS

    “I couldn’t have hand-picked a better home, a better group of young men that he’s with, and above all a better staff. I can rest easily knowing that he is in this house, taken care of; happy, safe, secure…and having a blast.
