Springbrook (formerly the Upstate Home for Children and Adults)

Our church conducts several fundraisers for Springbrook. Monies raised at the main fundraiser go toward operating expenses. The all-church Christmas Card fundraiser goes toward camper ships. We also collect Campbell “Labels for Education” year round for the home.


The Springbrook based in Oneonta, NY, began as an orphanage in 1925, and eventually changed into a home for mentally handicapped persons from the age of 5 through adulthood. It is a not-for-profit corporation whose primary purpose is to provide residential care, treatment, training and rehabilitation, and to provide foster-home care services where appropriate.  Recently, the dormitory style housing of the 1970's has been changed into group homes built on the campus. The Board of Directors consists of representatives from various American Baptist Churches in New York State.


You can learn more about this organization in the book "Have the Children Been Fed?" by William Nunn and Martha Hulings. Additional information, about the Home, can also be obtained by visiting Springbrookny.org or writing directly to Patricia Kennedy, Executive Director, 2705 State Highway 28, Oneonta, New York 12820.
