About Us

Our Mission

Partnering with individuals to create quality lives and opportunities for independence.

About Us

For over three decades, ALG has been recognized for its unique sensitivity to the special needs of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Capital District. ALG was founded with a commitment to serve a community rich in diversity and to partner with individuals and families from all backgrounds to ensure quality lives and to create meaningful opportunities for independence.

Building on our founding tradition, ALG’s services today extend to the Capital District’s suburbs, rural areas and inner-cities alike. We provide person-centered choices across a wide range of residential, recreational and support services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the Capital District. Our goal is to create environments where persons with developmental disabilities can be safe, happy, and can develop the confidence and skills to live as independently as possible.

From our beautiful homes and apartments, to our after-school respite services and summer camp, all of ALG’s services are provided without direct cost to individuals and families.

We hope you will tour our website to learn more about ALG and its many services. You are also welcome to call us at 518-374-0053 or stop by our main office at 500 New Karner Road, Suite 3, Albany, New York 12205-3857.
