Kreyasyon ak Premye Ane

An 1946, plizyè gwoup paran ki andikape soti nan alantou Eta New York te fòme yon asosyasyon pou ogmante konsyantizasyon piblik, patwone paran ak fòmasyon pwofesyonèl, ankouraje rechèch, ak angaje yo nan defans lejislatif pou devlopman sèvis ki nesesè pou pitit yo.

Gwoup sa a ki lach nan lidè lokal yo pita te vin li te ye tankou Asosyasyon Serebral Palsysy nan Eta New York (CP nan NYS). Nan kèk ane, Asosyasyon an te grandi pou enkli sant tretman serebral nan tout Eta New York pou ede lajè aksè nan sèvis sipò yo.

Nan ane 1950 yo, avèk etablisman Lekòl Leta Willowbrook nan Staten Island ak lòt Lekòl Eta yo, CP NYS te kòmanse bay fòmasyon nan sèvis pou anplwaye enstalasyon sa yo pou asire bon jan kalite pwogram ak swen pou moun ki gen paralezi serebral ak lòt andikap devlopmantal.

In 1972, Geraldo Rivera aired a hidden-camera story on the decline and conditions at Willowbrook. After public outcry, the facility was shuttered and the manner of treating people with disabilities was forever changed. See our participation in the fiftieth anniversary event on of the airing of the program and the dedication of The Willowbrook Mile.

Post-Willowbrook

The shift in care launched the era of “de-institutionalization” and CP of NYS remained a leader in the field. The Agency developed mini-teams to work with former residents and to provide further staff support and training. This initiative marked the transformation of the organization from a State Association to a direct service provider.

During this period, CP of NYS was asked to take over seven buildings on the Willowbrook grounds to create community-based living opportunities for previous residents of Willowbrook and other State Developmental Centers, in collaboration with the newly formed New York State Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities. Today, we still support the largest cohort of former residents in CP settings throughout New York City and Hudson Valley.

Ekspansyon Eta

Ane 1980 yo te pote yon ekspansyon nan pwogram tretman jou, klinik, atelye atelye, ak pwogram travay pou moun k ap viv kounye a nan kominote a. CP nan NYS afilye toupatou nan Eta a defann tou pou bezwen pou sèvis entèvansyon pre-lekòl ak bonè pou jèn timoun ki gen andikap.

Pa 2018, CP nan NYS te evolye nan yon òganizasyon ki baze sou laj, òganizasyon milti-sèvis k ap sèvi moun nan ak tout kalite andikap entelektyèl ak devlopmantal. Nan mwa jen ane sa a, Ajans la etabli Divizyon Hudson Valley li yo bay rezidansyèl, jounen jodi a, ak Atik 16 sèvis klinik pou granmoun ki gen andikap entelektyèl ak devlopmantal nan tout Konte Putnam ak Olandè yo. Òganizasyon an kounye a enkli Sèvis Metro Services ak Sant Sante Metro Kominotè ki sitiye nan Vil New York, yon biwo Sèvis Afilye nan Albani, New York, ak vennkat afilye nan tout Eta New York.

CP San limit Jodi a

Nan 2019, òganizasyon an deplase konsantre li nan Vil New York ak pi lwen pase pou pi bon swen pou yon popilasyon k ap grandi nan moun ki gen I / DD ki bezwen sipò. Adaptasyon nou an nan opsyon chin an tap amelyore k ap viv kominote a, pwogram jou, pwogram travay pwofesyonèl ak travay, sèvis medikal ak klinik, entèvansyon bonè, edikasyon, rekreyasyon ak sèvis sipò fanmi.

Avèk pivot sa a te vini yon nouvo non: Patenarya konstriktif (CP) San limit.

Etandone rasin nou yo, nou rete kole kole ak biwo Sèvis Afilye nou yo nan Albani kòm byen ke ak ajans ko-afilye nou yo ki sitiye nan tout Eta a. Nou ap travay tou ak patnè devlopman yo elaji ofrann nou yo nan tout zòn esansyèl sa yo ak ajans varye yo pi byen ofri sipò entegre pou moun ki gen I / DD nan tout travay nou an, nou rete eksite fòme chapit la pwochen nan istwa CP San limit ak grandi enpak nou an.
