At Otsar, we believe that every person, regardless of age or ability, has the potential for growth and achievement. Every person with intellectual and developmental disabilities deserves the opportunity to develop, maximize their abilities and reach their potential. Otsar doesn’t see disabilities, only potential abilities. To that end, Otsar provides many comprehensive and cutting edge programs to help children and adults with disabilities maximize their potential and become as integrated into their community as possible.
As the only Jewish organization that provides services for individuals and families in all five boroughs of New York City, Otsar is widely recognized as the premiere service provider for the community. From pre-school through adulthood, Otsar’s dedicated team of professionals provides a broad spectrum of services individualized to each person and designed to help them achieve their personal goals.
The name “Otsar” is the Hebrew word for treasure. Otsar believes that each individual with disabilities is truly a treasure – a valuable treasure that should be respected, admired, and cherished.
