Mission: In 1984, saratoga bridges opened the first accessible community-based home in the county for people with developmental disabilities. Subsequently, our residential program has grown tremendously. Our goal is to teach residents to become independent in living environments by offering support and services to live, work and socialize within the community. Saratoga bridges offers several different day services for hundreds of adults of all ages with developmental disabilities. Each of the options emphasizes the same philosophy in that our role is to support individuals to reach their greatest possible potential. We examine the whole person, their capabilities, relationships, job skills, home life and hobbies. Our hope is to provide day services so that every individual can strive to reach his/her personal goals and dreams in order to have a full, active life.
