Rehabilitation center gets $6M expansion


A $6 million investment will benefit children, adults and seniors who have disabilities in the Dayton area.

The United Rehabilitation Services of Greater Dayton at the Charles D. Berry Center will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday to celebrate its “Unlocking PossAbilities” expansion project. The project adds an additional 21,647 square feet to the URS center at 4710 Old Troy Pike.

The project will increase capacity to accommodate an additional 60 children for the center’s early childhood education and school-age programs. It will triple the amount of infants the center serves, and double the number of toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children served.

The childcare services works with children with and without disabilities. The new wing also adds capacity by 100 additional adults and seniors with disabilities. A new senior room, expanded vocational training program, laundry center, gymnasium, computer lab and nursing clinic have been added.

Capacity has been increased to accommodate an additional 160 youth and adult clients in total, according to a statement from the center.

The center was originally founded in 1956 as the Dayton Chapter of United Cerebral Palsy, and now serves clients with Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, autism, Alzheimer’s, and other developmental disorders and disabilities.
