Mission & Vision

We believe and advocate that….
All children and adults with disabilities have a fundamental right to public education that prepares them to function as independently as possible.

At the age of 14, students start the program and create a transition plan to guide them through school and into adulthood based on what they would like and are able to do. Our students have been limited in going out into the community which makes this van essential to allow our students to have access to explore their interests. Click the link to learn more!

For 15 year old Angel, broadcasting is his favorite interest. Angel spends his lunch time pretending to be a commentator at sports events and was the MC this year at our agency’s Annual Wheelchair Basketball Tournament hosted at the Westchester County Center. While he also develops clerical skills at our onsite café, with this wheelchair accessible van, Angel will be able to explore more commentating possibilities out in the community.

“For most people, work is essential to a livelihood, a sense of worth and accomplishment, and overall life satisfaction. Unfortunately, a disproportionate number of students with disabilities or low academic performance do not go on to experience steady, satisfying, or gainful employment. Schools must give more focus, in both time and resources, to preparing noncollege track students for work or post-school training” -Edward M. Levinson and Eric J. Palmer
