Fredrick W. Erlich
Executive Director of Living Resources
In the fall of 2005, Living Resources created a life-changing opportunity for four young women in the Capital Region. In partnership with The College of Saint Rose, Living Resources launched the College Experience Program, a two-year certificate program for people with developmental disabilities.
This collaborative project is made possible by the Opportunities for People Through Services (OPTS) initiative started by the New York State Office for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and has been driven by the enthusiasm of the participants and their families. Living Resources and The College of Saint Rose will continue to expand the program to serve more students in the coming years.
