Recent Work

This residence is one of the newest residential IRAs which was certified by OPWDD on October 13, 2016 in Brooklyn, NY. This residence was established to meet the needs of 6 aging out gentlemen from residential schools outside of the New York City area. These gentlemen are now able to live in a smaller setting where they can be closer to their families. There are clinical supports in place to assist the gentlemen with this transitional period and they are proud to have a place that they can call home.

Future Goals

To enhance the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities to meet their full potential.
