The High Falls Center for the Developmentally Disabled provides financial support and therapeutic services for individuals with developmental disabilites, including: residential summer camp programs, community skills development services and more.
The High Falls Center began its mission in 1990 to provide support and services to individuals with developmental disabilities to experience positive and productive outcomes to lead a successful and enriching life, was developed early in its formation and based on its articles of incorporation.
The goals for the High Falls Center for the Developmentally Disabled (HFCDD) were established in 1990 by Dr. Bruria Bodek-Falik to improve the quality of life and to train persons with developmental disabilities for independence. The HFCDD offers support and services to provide safe, structured and beneficial programming to individuals that are striving for success, and for staff training to improve upon the support personnel available to provide services and to increase the safety of service provision. The results the High Falls Center has been assisting individuals with developmental disabilities to attend therapeutic recreation programs since 1990, when the foundation was established.
Each year, we raise between $25,000 to $50,000 to contribute to individuals to attend special needs programs. Our new fundraising goals are to increase contributions by 100% each year, please help us in that effort with your contribution to one of our fundraising campaigns.
Our organizational structure is comprised of a 4-person board of special education and psychology professionals who design and oversee services, operations and development.
Key achievements have been our core program, Residential Summer Camp Scholarship and Support Services, which have provided service supports as an active operating charity function since 1990.
