In 1973, a group of mothers joined together to create a space for their children with developmental delays and the Cerebral Palsy Treatment Center of Brazoria County was born and chartered by the State of Texas. This mission and vision are what we know today as BACH. After donning the new name and receiving nonprofit status, Angleton-Danbury General Hospital loaned BACH a room in the hospital and the first licensed physical therapist was hired to serve the community.
The Early Years--1970s BACH first began providing therapeutic services in a room at the Angleton-Danbury General Hospital after the first Physical Therapist (PT), Linda Klapper, was hired. Within a few years, Bach quickly expanded and outgrew the space at the hospital and moved to Dr. Weiner’s clinic.
New Location--1980s On land leased from ADGH, BACH built the main office and named it The Curry Building in honor of W.V. "Buster" Curry. Curry led the capital campaign to raise funds for the building. BACH also began providing rehabilitative services to adults.
Service Changes--1990s At direction from the state, BACH changed from providing ECI services from a variety of program sites to delivering services in the child's natural environment such as the home or daycare facility. BACH also made the decision to go back to solely serving children.
Expansion--2000s BACH once again outgrew the space and expanded the Curry Building on land donated by the Earl Knight family in 1984, in honor of their granddaughter Krystal.
New Program Launch--2010s BACH adds a much-needed program, Buster's Kids, for children that don't qualify for ECI services. Buster's Kids, named for Buster Curry, began providing clinic-based services to fill the need for ongoing therapy services.
2020s BACH continues to adapt and overcome, even during adversity and uncertain times of navigating a global pandemic as a healthcare provider.
