WHO WE ARE
HCA, Helping Celebrate Abilities, has been providing services to the disabled population since 1947. What began as a small preschool for special needs children has grown into a much larger organization serving people with disabilities of all ages. These programs include 15 residential group homes, 10 integrated preschool classrooms as well as respite, habilitation, counseling, employment, and self-directed services. HCA is a NYS Cerebral Palsy Affiliate as well as a United Way Member Agency.
Our mission is to develop, establish and maintain multidisciplinary diagnostic and treatment services for developmentally and physically disabled persons and their families; plan and implement individualized programs designed to increase to the greatest possible degree the individual’s physical, social, intellectual, and emotional abilities; and enable developmentally disabled persons to remain in the community, develop to their fullest potential, and become independent functional members of society.
