Our History

"I was thinking how to close the gap from training habilitation skills and real life experience. My vision was to create a program that offers a way to gain skills and confidence while incorporating a real-world work place. “

                                                                    - Vilas Loban, President& CEO

In 2010, Daybreak Independent Services opened its doors for individuals with developmental disabilities to learn and apply their skills in a laundromat work setting. Since then Daybreak has expanded its mission to multiple locations adding both people and additional services. Serving hundreds of New Yorkers living with developmental disabilities.

Partnerships with local businesses like Stew Leonard, TJ Maxx and Marshalls has allowed the vision to grow exponentially.  Taking on residential programs has allowed us to serve those that need round the clock supervision.

This is only the beginning. As we changes lives everyday we ourselves are changed in the process. The work continues and we look forward to what lies ahead.
