A letter from YAI/RCAPD director, Christine Reinhard

Photograph of Christine ReinhardWelcome to YAI/RCAPD. We are proud to have our roots in Rockland County, but provide services throughout the Hudson Valley and Mid-Hudson Regions. We currently support over 700 people and their families annually through a variety of services. Our goal is to support people with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities in leading productive, self-sufficient and integrated lives. As part of the YAI Network, YAI/RCAPD is able to offer its staff, families, and the people we support access to the resources of YAI, while providing personal, local, and individualized services. We share YAI’s philosophy of enhancing people’s lives in the areas of living, loving, working, and learning.

As you explore our website you will notice that we offer a wide range of supports and services to children, young adults, and adults. We work collaboratively with our state and local partners, including Rockland and Orange County BOCES, Rockland County Department of Mental Health, ACCES-VR and OPWDD. Our services include vocational, employment, and day services, a wide array of residential options with varying levels of support and supervision, social and recreation programs, and supports for people living at home with their families. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please contact us at 845.358.5700 and we will assist you through our information and referral service in locating the services you or your family member needs, either from YAI/RCAPD or another provider.

We look forward to welcoming you to our family and helping you or your family member achieve their greatest potential.
