Our Mission

[av_textblock ]


To provide support and services to individuals with developmental disabilities to experience positive and productive outcomes to lead a successful and enriching life.


The High Falls Center for the Developmentally Disabled (HFCDD) was established in 1990 by Dr. Bruria Bodek-Falik to improve the quality of life and to train persons with developmental disabilities for independence. The HFCDD offers support and services to provide safe, structured and beneficial programming to individuals that are striving for success.


The High Falls Center has been assisting individuals with developmental disabilities to attend therapeutic recreation programs since 1990, when the foundation was established. Each year, we raise between $25,000 to $50,000 to contribute to individuals to attend special needs programs. Our new fundraising goals are to increase contributions by 100% each year, please help us in that effort with your contribution to one of our fundraising campaigns.
