Oak Hill helps people with disabilities experience rich, fulfilling lives in communities throughout Connecticut. Through education, assistive technology, programs and advocacy, we support them at every stage of life. We also provide a robust array of services to those people who work with, live with and care for people challenged by disabilities.

Oak Hill serves children and adults with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities. Today, it is the largest private nonprofit 501(c)(3) community provider of services for people with disabilities in Connecticut. Our legal name is The Connecticut Institute for the Blind, Inc., d/b/a, Oak Hill. Check out our programs!

 

A Message from the President

2014 has certainly been an exciting year. Your collaboration and hard work have helped to contribute to Oak Hill’s success. The dedication of our participants, staff, board of directors, and the generosity of our donors has enabled us to continue during difficult times and will allow us to move forward into the future. We thank you.

A New Vision

Since I became CEO, I’ve talked to as many people as possible about our vision for Oak Hill: plans to expand and transform our programs and services to meet the changing needs of the communities and people we serve. We will concentrate on two key areas: the needs of our participants and educating the community and public policy makers on the importance of our services. We will continue to build a strong infrastructure that can withstand the significant challenges upon us.
