Inspire Announces Partnership with ADAPT Community Network



Goshen, NY –July 7, 2021 – Orange County Cerebral Palsy Association, d.b.a. Inspire, a Goshen based not-for-profit providing programs and supports for individuals with special needs for over 70 years, announced today they will join ADAPT Community Network, a leading not-for-profit New York City based agency and a pioneer in providing programs and services that improve quality of life for people with disabilities.

The partnership with ADAPT Community Network makes Inspire part of a larger network of providers enhancing the scope and depth of Inspire’s programs and supports. “We are excited about the opportunities this relationship can bring to Inspire and the community we support,” said Marcel Martino, President & CEO of Inspire. “ADAPT Community Network shares in our vision to deliver the highest quality of care for individuals with disabilities.”

Inspire embarked on a search for a strategic partner several years ago. The primary intent of the partnership is to ensure long-term stability of Inspire. The partnership will allow Inspire to enhance the scope and depth of the services they provide and have no impact on the day-to-day operation of Inspire’s programs and supports, or their students or participants. Inspire will continue operating with the same caring and professional staff, and convenient locations throughout Orange County. The Inspire Board of Directors, comprised of community leaders, will remain intact. “We believe this partnership will aid in our growth and sustain our ability to serve our consumers into the future” said Ralph J. Martucci, Inspire Board Chairman.
