Community Access has been leading the charge for safe, affordable housing and employment opportunities for individuals with psychiatric disabilities for over 35 years. We are dedicated to helping vulnerable New Yorkers make the transition from homelessness, institutionalization and incarceration to independent living.
Community Access provides a range of housing, job skills, employment placement and professional support services to help break the cycle of homelessness, institutionalization and/or incarceration that often complicates the lives of people who have a history of mental illness.
We focus on creating pathways to meaningful and successful community life. Through engagement with the whole person, rather than with the diagnosis or disability, we build trust over time, attend to the person’s stated goals and needs, and, directly or indirectly, provide a range of services that enable the person with a psychiatric disability to achieve his or her full potential.
