To All Individuals Associated with The Fogarty Center and/or Ocean State Community Resources, Inc.  (OSCR)

As most of you are aware, The Fogarty Center and OSCR had entered into an agreement on July 1, 2013 to merge the two companies.   During the past 3 plus years both agencies having been working hard to obtain this goal.    As of January 1, 2017 this goal will be accomplished.

During this 3-year transition period, both agencies have been acting as one entity in most of the administrative areas.  We have eliminated an executive director’s position and combined our finance, human resource, maintenance, and nursing departments.   In order to focus more on our intended mission, earlier this year the Fogarty Center’s two child day care centers were sold as well the Veteran’s Home in Woonsocket.

The name of this “new” merged company will be The Fogarty Center.   While the “name” Ocean State Community Resources, Inc. will no longer exist as of January 1, 2017, all services and supports for both agencies will remain exactly the same.      The Fogarty Center’s finance office has been re-located in Barrington.   The Children’s Services Programs (HBTS, PASS and Respite), as well as South County Adult Day Services will continue to be located in Kingston, RI.

As of January 1, 2017 The Fogarty Center will be licensed to provide the following services:

*24 Hour Residential

               *Non-24 Hour Residential

               *Self-Directed Supports (OPTIONS and PersonalChoice)

               *Community Based Day Programs

               *Supportive Employment

               *Shared Living Arrangements (SLA)

               *Community Based Supports

*Home Based Therapeutic Services (HBTS), Personal Assistance Services and Supports (PASS)    

                 and Respite


I am extremely excited about our new venture and look forward to many more years of providing quality services.  Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 401- 353-7000 or 401-245-7900 ext.111 or my email at dreiss@fogartycenter.org
