Connecticut’s Largest Private Provider of Services to People With Disabilities
Oak Hill provides a full range of services to people with disabilities. We help all ages, from newborns to seniors. And our experienced staff covers the needs of every intellectual, developmental and physical disability.
We believe that people with disabilities have the right and capability to be contributing, productive members of their communities. Building from that belief, we established a full-service organization to care for, educate and advocate for disabled people, their families and their communities.
