"When you have a disability, knowing you are not defined by it is the sweetest feeling."
We provide an array of services to individuals of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We inspire individuals to reach their highest potentials, and our values ensure a strong foundation of support based on our guiding principles. Our staff and volunteers strive to ensure effective programming which includes providing services based on individualized goals, creating opportunities for education as well as employment.
In our nurturing and caring environment, we promote independence and individuality along with community integration.
We also provide exercise and activity for overall health and well-being.
The Olean Center offers several options for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
There are programs for both in-home and community support for families of children with disabilities.
The overall goal of these programs is to assist each person to function as independently as possible and to maximize their potential, motivation and self-esteem. The emphasis here is placed on community involvement.
