NYSHA - New York State Hamaspik Association
Message From ED

Welcome to Hamaspik Center for Human Services; Home on the Internet. I hope you enjoy your stay and visit our site often for updates.

At Hamaspik, we welcome inquiries about our programs and relish the opportunity to tell the story of our services to people in need. It is the people served who drive all that we do. The person served is at the center of a plan for behavior modification, socialization and integration into full community life.

Our advocates strive to strengthen the "voice" of the person with disabilities and that individual's family. The work of highly trained staff is dictated by the interests, preferences and choices of the person we serve.

So, with this web site we introduce a series of notable programs such as, individualized goals, group and supportive home environments, family supports, home modifications, advocacy roles, early intervention, therapy, financial assistance, recreational activity, vocational opportunity and religious and spiritual guidance. It is the feeling conveyed by our staff for the individual served that is indescribable, but demonstrable, in all Hamaspik agencies.

By watching, hearing and participating, visitors will discover the depth of the staff's commitment, sense the warmth of the environment and understand the individualized approach for providing a person in need the highest possible quality of life.

To make our program come alive for your family, we cordially invite you to visit with us.

Joel Freund
Executive Director
