We believe that people (with or without special needs) lead richer lives when they are empowered and provided the skills and supports to meet life’s challenges, and they are ultimately able to achieve true interdependence within their natural communities.
At CNY Quest, we believe that by empowering people with special needs, they will be able to live more enriched and fulfilling lives by learning to create meaningful natural supports and relationships within their communities. In all of our services, we strive to enable people with special needs to help themselves; to help family and friends of people with special needs to become more powerful change agents; and to help the broader community recognize and support people with special needs as equal and valuable members of the community.
CNY Quest’s mission is to enrich the lives of people with developmental, Intellectual, and mental health disorders by providing comprehensive, state-of-the-science assessment and treatment services; facilitating systemic improvements in services and education; supporting and advocating for individuals in their quest for achieving their optimal potential: and enhancing community supports, awareness and education.
Most importantly, CNY Quest is a place where people come first. Our commitment is to the individuals we serve, their families and the community!
