Dear Friends,

When our daughter Rosalee was a student at Corinth Central School, we began working with one of Saratoga Bridges’ Service Coordinators who provided us with academic, social and emotional resources. Upon graduation, she helped us explore day program options. After touring several, we chose their Ballston Spa program. With an extended family of awesome, caring, dedicated staff and a close group of friends, Rosalee has a busy schedule engaging in community activities like volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.

We started searching for a community-based home for Rosalee in 2013 and were confident that the organization’s 50+ years of quality experience, would provide the best services for her. Since moving in, she has developed an ever-expanding circle and has had opportunities that enrich her life, increase her independence and contribute to personal triumphs and achievements. We attribute much of Rosalee’s success to the support she receives from Saratoga Bridges. For that, we are extremely grateful!

As a result, we are proud to be the 2019-2020 MEMBERSHIP AMBASSADORS and encourage you to become a MEMBER as well. Every individual must have access to critical supports needed to thrive. Due to the current state and federal budgetary challenges, it is crucial we all remain proactive in advocating for essential funding to ensure Saratoga Bridges can continuously deliver the highest level of excellent services. We believe if we educate our stakeholders, strengthen our state-wide voice, raise our visibility, create partnerships and collaborate throughout the community, our family members will succeed.

Just giving $5 annually to be a MEMBER or $100 for a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP will assist your neighbors, family and friends like Rosalee. Our 2019-2020 goal is to increase from 3,842 to 4,000 MEMBERS and remain one of The Arc NY’s Top 10 Chapters. We request that you encourage your family and friends to consider making a gift ONLINE.  If you have any questions, please contact Pamela Polacsek at 518.587.0723 ext. 1255 or

Thank you for empowering Saratoga Bridges. Your support of their mission will enrich, enhance and elevate lives. As a result, you truly will be a DIFFERENCE MAKER!


Judy and Mark Hays, Rosalee’s very proud Mom and Dad
