SARATOGA SPRINGS — AIM Services, Inc., a non-profit organization that assists people with disabilities in gaining independence, has added a two-story wing to accommodate nearly 2,000 employees under one roof.  Previously, AIM Services rented office space on Ballard Road in Wilton.

“…We started out today’s dedication with two (employees) that have just moved into the new offices and their story was about how they can just do their job so much better now with the new facility and how thankful they were to be able to have this and give them the tools they needed to do the job,” said Walt Adams, Director of Public Relations at AIM Services. 

On staff at AIM Services clinical physicians, including psychologists, nurses and employees called Direct Support People (DSP) that are trained once hired to work with individuals. 

AIM Services helps individuals with of all ages, and all degrees of developmental disabilities as well as Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) with all aspects of life. 

“From just needing a helping hand around their assisted apartment, to living in a residential setting, and people who need 24-hour-care,” said Adams. 

The agency, which serves Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties, has grown rapidly in the last couple of years, according to Adams. 

Their list of services also includes, respite, family education training, community habilitation and employment services. According to Adams, AIM Services are between 150 to 200 people at any one given time.
