How do I obtain services from Saratoga Bridges
If you or someone you know is interested in obtaining services from Saratoga Bridges, the process begins by contacting the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). Who is OPWDD?
~ The NYS agency responsible for coordinating services to 126,000+ New Yorkers with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
~ The NYS agency responsible for certifying and overseeing approximately 800 voluntary agency providers (like Saratoga Bridges).
~ A provider of residential/day services for a small percentage of people served.
Please review OPWDD’s Front Door program — http://www.opwdd.ny.gov/welcome-front-door/home — to better acquaint yourself with the process and eligibility.
