NEW Brand Announcement!

It is with great pride that The Kelberman Center, which began with the vision of founder and Board of Director’s President Dr. Michael Kelberman over 15 years ago, along with tremendous help from Upstate Cerebral Palsy and Upstate Caring Partners, Inc., has now rebranded and developed into its own independent organization.

Today, Tara Costello, Kelberman Executive Director, and Frank Behlmer, Kelberman Board of Directors Vice President, announced the change to staff at an event this morning and to the media and community this afternoon. Costello stated, “We are thrilled to announce our new brand today. Kelberman is rapidly expanding and now, with over 300 staff members and locations in Utica, Rome and Syracuse, we are an entirely self-sufficient and thriving organization ready to meet the needs of the community in an even bigger and more impactful way."

"Our new brand symbolizes a new and exciting phase for us as an agency. We thank Upstate Cerebral Palsy for providing leadership and resources to our organization in its infancy, as it did to many other new and growing agencies over the years. Now, as a completely independent organization, we are fully positioned to realize Dr. Kelberman’s dream of a center of excellence for autism here in our community; a dream that began decades ago as he searched for a place for his son to receive autism services locally.”
