About Catholic Charities
Catholic Charities Disabilities Services, a not-for-profit agency of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany, was established in 1984. We provide services and supports to children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities residing within eleven counties including Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Warren, Washington, Fulton, Montgomery, Schoharie, Columbia and Greene.
We strive to provide individuals who have developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries with opportunities and supports to learn the skills and develop the confidence needed to live their lives as independently as possible within the community of their choice. We pledge to maintain the highest level of excellence and sensitivity in all that we do to provide dignified, caring, and professional services that assist the people we support to maximize their potential in every area of life, regardless of their age or the nature of their disabilities.
Our values-based approach incorporates, at its core, communication, dignity, empowerment, excellence, independence, integrity, leadership, responsiveness, and safety. These values are woven into all that we do and are, without question, the key to our overall success.
