About Us

Your Partner in Care Coordination

We work with the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities and partner provider organizations to navigate the best services for you or your loved one. 

Our Services

From Otsego to Fulton, Herkimer to Broome, we know our region and each unique community within it. From a person you trust, close to home, there are so many big reasons to go small with Southern Tier Connect.

Our network of exceptional providers and care managers is vital for anyone managing a diagnosis of an intellectual and/or developmental disability. STC provides comprehensive care management by referring and connecting our members to appropriate healthcare providers, social programs, and community-based organizations, including support and faith-based groups by request.

Check out this overview video for a brief introduction to Southern Tier Connect and all we can offer you or your loved one.
