Welcome to Onondaga Community Living! What can we do for you?
OCL is an agency that cares. We are a group of people who work towards the best for each person and the people in their lives. We care about the people we support, their families, and all those that contribute to their wellbeing. OCL was originally formed in 1987 by families and other concerned citizens who wanted more individualized and caring support for the persons they love and care about. Since the early 1990s OCL is known as one of the original innovators in developing personalize supports; supporting persons with developmental disabilities to live, work, and socialize safely in the community. Though the system has changed and management of the agency has changed the agency will continue the tradition of providing individualized assistance to support the real wishes, wants, and needs of the persons we serve.
OCL is now serving youth, especially transitioning youth, and young to older adults. We’re now serving persons in Onondaga, Oswego, and parts of Cayuga, Cortland, and Madison counties.
OCL is open for business. We are accepting new referrals for all services!
