The New York State Rehabilitation Association is a statewide 501 (c) (6) organization representing over 130 rehabilitation providers, that advocate on behalf of people with differing disabilities and the agencies who serve them. NYSRA is governed by a twenty-three member Board of Directors, which meets quarterly. Our community providers offer the full spectrum of services to consumers throughout New York State, including individuals with developmental disabilities, mental illness, deaf and hearing impaired and vision problems, in addition to addiction and traumatic brain injuries. Collectively, NYSRA’s member agencies are instrumental in assisting consumers toward full integration into the community. NYSRA’s providers also have a rich history in promoting employment opportunities for individuals that range from work centers to one-stops.
NYSRA is distinguished as a strong and diverse association that represents members across the rehabilitation spectrum as well as the interests of individual sectors. We are also a valuable resource for families who inquire about referrals to our vast network of community service agencies. NYSRA prides itself on our collective diversity through which our member agencies foster person-centered planning, self determination, consumer choice, empowerment, mainstreaming, and integration. These are the principles through which our member agencies operate, to provide options and opportunities for people with disabilities to live and successfully work in the community.
