Community Services

Community Habilitation provides in-home habilitation assistance to individuals (including children) with disabilities. The community habilitation service is intended to be a more efficient mechanism for the delivery of habilitative services in the community to facilitate community inclusion, relationship building, leisure skills, self- advocacy, travel training, and assistance with activities of daily living.

Respite services are provided in-home or in a respite apartment, offering care for children or adults with developmental disabilities when their families are temporarily unable to care for them or when family caretakers simply need a break. Day, overnight and weekend respite services are available for families residing in Manhattan and the Bronx with children or adults with developmental disabilities.

Individuals will be cared for at a freestanding site to allow families some rest time, to take care of personal issues, or in an emergency.

Please contact our intake specialist at (212) 643-2840, ext. 336.
