Our Mission

To enable and empower people, primarily those with disabilities, to lead healthy and enriched lives.
For over 75 years, the Center for Disability Services has been one of upstate New York’s largest providers of programs and services for individuals who have disabilities. 

With more than 80 locations throughout 15 counties, we annually provide programs and services to over 12,000 individuals, ranging from infants to senior citizens, and their families. We provide services for over 300 different diagnoses of disabilities included Cerebral Palsy, developmental disabilities, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism Spectrum disorders, epilepsy, spina bifida, TBI and Down syndrome.

Our wide range of services under a single umbrella allow us to provide a seamless continuum of care as the people we serve age or as their needs change. From intensive medical care to residential services, to dental care to mental health, the individuals we serve can have it all managed through the Center.

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 more independent lifestyles and productive, happier lives.
