We don’t just make lives better, we transform them.

The Center for Discovery is a place where hundreds of children and adults reside, attend school, or receive clinical day services paired with immersive educational, nutritional, social, recreational, and creative arts experiences. We are grounded in the belief that every person deserves the opportunity to live life to its fullest potential.

Our most impactful therapeutic and research programs are only possible because of outside philanthropic funding. The Center for Discovery’s $100 million endowment campaign promises to be our most important chapter yet, and we’d be honored if you’d be a part of it.

Our Impact

We add value and opportunity from all our communities.

  • $2 Billion in economic impact on the state of New York throughout the last decade.
  • 1200 children and adults served each year.
  • 350 children and adults, living in 52 different residences – located on our farms and on Main Street in Hurleyville, NY.
  • 1700 employees, the largest employer in Sullivan County.

Our Approach

We think outside the box by thinking outside the disability.

The Center’s success stems from its innovative therapies and immersive environments. Caring for individuals with a range of complex conditions, from cerebral palsy and Down syndrome, to autism and other rare conditions, includes a profound understanding of the environment, nutrition, and other lifestyle factors that impact their health and ultimately our health, too.

At TCFD, we have developed a unique therapeutic ecosystem in which every space, activity, technology, and service is designed to work in tandem, creating spaces that encourage each individual to be and do their best. The outcome? We believe in metrics that reflect whole-person results, measured in deeper sleep, healthy appetites, and other well-being measures.

The Center is continually transforming and advancing new models of care to better support people with complex health and social needs.

The Center for Discovery takes the entire individual into perspective. It’s about the overall health and social and emotional wellness of the individual. Our family has experienced many organizations, but only The Center has this approach.

Your Opportunity

We can turn adversity into opportunity but we need partners like you to do it.

At its core, the endowment is about The Center’s financial security. A $100M endowment will insulate The Center’s community from external crises, government funding cuts, and more. Most importantly, this campaign is about sustaining the heart of The Center – the staff, the houses and farms, the organic food, science and research, arts therapies, and life experiences.
