For over sixty years SARAH has dedicated itself, its people, and its resources to assisting children and adults with physical and mental disabilities in their determination to achieve success as individuals, employees, and citizens.

In its tradition of highly personalized services, the SARAH family of agencies shares a commitment to empower people with disabilities to:

SARAH offers several residential choices that provide support for daily living in small home and apartment settings as well as individual, specialized contracts between participant and families offering only needed services.
