At sasi, we transform the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
What started in a Springville garage in 1974 with four staffers serving 12 individuals has blossomed into one of the largest non-profit service providers in the region. We now have close to 1,000 employees serving 4,000 individuals in more than 50 locations.
While sasi has grown exponentially in the past 40 years, our high standards of care and our steadfast dedication to providing excellent support have never wavered. Our goal is and always has been to enable people with special needs to lead meaningful and productive lives and to be as independent as possible.
Our passionate and dedicated staff provide not just personal care, but employment training and placement, clinical habilitation services, 24-hour residential care, and recreation.
Through initiatives like the High Hurdles therapeutic horseback riding program, the Moving Miracles Dance Studio and the Personal Training Program for individuals with special needs, sasi embraces creative opportunities in caring for our individuals. We also provide enriching employment for them through the Original Kazoo Company, the New Angola Theater, and the Buffalo Box Kite Company.
Headquartered in Elma, sasi’s reach stretches throughout Erie, Cattaraugus and Wyoming counties with its residential and habilitation facilities.
