Prospect Center, located in Queensbury, NY, offers multi-faceted services for at-risk and developmentally disabled individuals in our community. We became affiliated with the Center for Disability Services, located in Albany, NY, in 2013. Our Mission is to enable and empower people, primarily those with disabilities, to lead healthy and enriched lives.
In the late 1940’s, a handful of parents began to search for help and answers for their children with disabilities. This lead to the opening of a specialized clinic, first of its kind in the area, offering medical, surgical and physical therapy. Soon there were 60 families receiving services from the clinic. The Center was born with incorporation as United Cerebral Palsy of Glens Falls and was the beginning of an organized approach to treat children with cerebral palsy. As the organization grew, we began offering a wider range of services for a broader spectrum of disabilities and became known as the place where people get better at life.
Since the beginning, the Center has advocated for the equality and inclusion of the individuals we serve and to change community perception and attitudes about those with disabilities. Our innovative programs and services have been a huge support to people with disabilities and their families and allows them to lead independent, productive and happier lives. As the world continues to change, we will continue to make sure the people we serve are able to direct their own lives and achieve their dreams.
