We teach people of all ages the skills they will need to live their life to the best of their ability. One way we do this is to focus on a person’s ability not disability. Consumers of our services and programs are at work every day here in our community. Living life with quality and independent lifestyles built with our encouragement and support. This focus remains at the forefront of the E. John Gavras Center’s work to assist individuals with developmental and physical disabilities and their families. Sixty years ago in Auburn NY, a caring community and its leadership built the E. John Gavras Center so that this community’s children would have access to local services to help them overcome special needs or challenges they may face in life; helping them to achieve the highest quality of life. Over a decade ago services were expanded to include school age children and adults creating a continuum of care for individuals as they transition through critical life stages.
