Mission ~ in New York State ~ Oneonta ~
Springbrook is a not-for-profit organization located in Oneonta, New York. Initially, Springbrook was opened as an orphanage in 1925 and was known as the Upstate Baptist Home for Children. The home was established on a working 95-acre farm and also provided its young residents with an education. In 1992, the organization opened its integrated (serving children with and without special needs) Kids Unlimited Preschool. In 1994, the Upstate Home began providing Day-Habilitation services for disabled adults and currently offers a variety of educational, occupational, and recreational supports for over 65 individuals. In 2006, the Upstate Baptist Home for Children changed its name to Springbrook in order to better reflect the services it provides. In 2012 came the development of the Tom Golisano Center for Autism. Springbrook is the leader in innovative supports for disabled adults and children and includes a variety of services and programs such as an integrated preschool, a residential school, adult community homes, site-based and community-based habilitation, respite, and recreational programs.
