Prader-Willli Home

SDC is on the brink of an exciting new project.  We are currently working with families and OPWDD to open a home in the Bronx for individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome. This home will be the first home operated by a voluntary agency in the five boroughs that is dedicated to serving individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome.  There is only one other home located in the five boroughs that serves indivuduals with PW.  It is a state-operated residence located in Queens.

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder affecting the hypothalamus, resulting in excessive preoccupation with food, which can lead to obesity and related health issues.

New Residential Home

SDC has been granted approval to develop a residential home for six young adult individuals with developmental disabilities who presently reside outside of New York City.  We are currently in the process of finding a house that would provide a comfortable home for these individuals in a community that will compliment these individuals’ growing interests and needs.
