Jawonio History

Jawonio was organized in 1947 as the Cerebral Palsy Society of Rockland County, providing outpatient treatment for children with neuromuscular and other similar disabilities. In 1949, the first summer camp program for children with disabilities in Rockland County was founded; two years later, it was expanded to include an overnight program, Camp Jawonio. Jawonio has continued to expand its programs and now provides high quality services to more than 5,000 children and adults each year. Jawonio lifespan services in the Hudson Valley region are provided in Rockland and Westchester Counties.
