How We Help
Volunteers of America-Greater New York serves a wide range of adults with developmental disabilities including autism, acquired brain injury, and vision, hearing and speech impairments. From our scattered site supportive housing for adults, to community-based support for people living independently, our programs aim to promote community integration and to help clients live full and active lives.
Supportive Living Services
Volunteers of America-Greater New York supports people with intellectual disabilities in 24-hour residential settings - settings that range from single-person apartment settings to group homes, which primarily serve three or four people. All of our homes are located in communities close to family members and friends. Each supportive living residence is licensed and certified through state agencies and operates under Medicaid guidelines.
Volunteers of America-Greater New York’s residential service for people with developmental disabilities is a long-term service, and it is not unusual for someone to be in the care of Volunteers of America-Greater New York for more than 30 years in a supportive living residence.
