The ultimate goal for many individuals with a disability is to achieve independence and live on their own. Our Community Homes make that dream a reality for many.
Springbrook’s Community Homes are like your home, with family members engaging in many of the same day-to-day activities and responsibilities. Our family members help with chores, watch TV, share meals together, and participate in a wide variety of community activities—including working at local businesses. Many residents volunteer with local human service organizations and attend worship services of their choice, in their community. During the weekday, residents may attend a day habilitation program, volunteer, go to work, or work with other agencies in our area. On the weekends, our person-centered planning includes choices for recreation and leisure based on the interest of each individual.
Our staff provides a setting rich with support and choices for every individual. But beyond the everyday needs of our residents, Springbrook provides the additional support many individuals may need, including 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week staffing and on-call nursing services.
All of Springbrook's 24 homes are regulated by the New York State Office of People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). The individuals who live in a Community Home may come from residing in another agency, at home, family care, or graduate from school and be ready to move on to the next phase of their life. Springbrook makes the difference by assisting each person in the pursuit of activities to enrich their lives and choices.
