Hello and welcome to Bay Area Rehabilitation Center. I am the Executive Director and would like to share with you a little information about this organization that I hope will inform and educate you about what we do and who we serve. Within this website you can find more detail about each program I mention.
Bay Area Rehabilitation Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was originally formed in 1948 by a small group of parents with a common interest and concern—the lack of affordable and local care for their children, all of whom had cerebral palsy. Since that early beginning over seventy years ago, we have evolved from the Baytown Spastic Association to the Baytown Society for Crippled Children and then in 1979 we formally became Bay Area Rehabilitation Center (Bay Area). As has our name, Bay Area the organization has also evolved over the years. Starting as just a center to assist with cerebral palsy, we expanded to provide medically based rehabilitation services (physical, occupational and speech) to any child who needed that type of service, regardless of the family’s insurance status or overall ability to pay. In the mid-90’s we further expanded by introducing Adult therapy services using the same guidelines as our pediatric program. Soon after and still within the Adult program, we began to serve some of our local business and industries, through providing physical pre-work screening for select jobs, return to work testing and conditioning for those injured on the job, as well as therapy for those with job related injuries. In 2007, the former Baytown Opportunity Center, an independent and local non-profit agency, was brought into the folds of Bay Area as major program. Within the Opportunity Center Program we assist adults, who typically have mild to severe mental disabilities, learn how to better adapt and live in the world around them. Lastly, in late 2019 we opened our Autism program. An expansion of, and working in conjunction with, our traditional Outpatient Adult and Pediatric programs, the Autism program works with those individuals diagnosed on the autism spectrum.
The mission of Bay Area Rehabilitation Center is to provide outpatient therapeutic, vocational, social skill training and recreational services for persons with disabilities or injuries and support services for their families. The Center also seeks to advocate for and work to provide accessible and affordable housing for this population.
Within those guidelines, we have a number of licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists as well as trained staff who work together to provide the best services possible to those clients in need. In order to meet the needs of all clients, even those with limited finances, we reinvest operational revenues back into the organization to support our financial aid program. We utilize contributions from the local and surrounding communities and have had the good fortune to receive funding from the United Way of Greater Baytown Area and Chambers County as well as United Way of Greater Houston, all with the objective of ensuring that no person who has a true need for our services will be forced to go without needed services.
We provide services in these different areas: Pediatric Outpatient therapy, Adult Outpatient therapy, Autism Services, the Opportunity Center program as well as Aquatic Exercise, which is performed in our 25 meter heated therapy pool. Lastly, but certainly not least, we provide service to children who are newborn and up to age three in our Early Childhood Intervention, ECI, program. In our ECI program we provide services primarily in the home of the child, whereas all other services are provided at our 5313 Decker Dr, Baytown, TX address.
Most of you will never have a need to take advantages of what we do, and for that reason you should consider yourself fortunate. For those of you who may have a need, great or small, my hope is you remember Bay Area Rehabilitation Center. For anyone interested, we welcome all visitors Monday thru Friday between 7 am and 6 pm.
Thank you for visiting Bay Area Rehabilitation Center and when needed, we hope you let us help you Live Your Best Life!
