Welcome to Clearbrook

It started as a dream for five families 60 years ago. A chance for education. A way to connect with their peers. A path to self-sufficiency. A focus on ability – not disability. Today, Clearbrook provides services, programs and support for children and adults with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other intellectual/developmental disabilities as well as their families. Five families paved the way. Since then, new milestones have been achieved everyday. What was thought impossible then is a part of everyday life for the 7,000 individuals and their families we serve each year.

Generations of Angels

The Clearbrook Guardians were founded In 1986 when Nicholas M. Schmitt, Jr., and several business associates and friends joined together to fulfill a common mission – to raise funds for our clients.  Despite their name, the majority of Clearbrook Guardians are not guardians of Clearbrook clients; however, this does not hinder their involvement.
