People diagnosed with a developmental disability are capable of leading full and productive lives, and Volunteers of America’s programs for this population reflect this belief. Whether assisting an individuals to learn to navigate through their community, obtain employment, or maximizing their skills and abilities, the goal for all the individuals we serve in these programs, is to help them reach their full potential to live safely, and as independently as they can, integrated into their communities.
- The Residential Services Program on Staten Island provides men and women with a developmental disability a safe, comfortable, and nurturing home environment.

Some individuals have staff support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while others require far less intensive supervision, but all have service plans and supportive services that reflect their individual independent-living, personal, vocational and recreational goals. Our caring and compassionate staff provide support and assistance and are dedicatedto ensuring individuals lead a safe, healthy and satisfying life. For information, please call (718) 448-4730.
