COMMUNITY HABILITATION SERVICES
Community Habilitation provides in- home and community services to the families of participants thereby supporting caregivers with the difficult task of raising a child with special needs. The services is provided anywhere from 15 to 30 hours a week.
Participants of all ages are eligible for this program as long as they qualify (Medicaid eligible, Bronx resident, diagnosed developmental disability). This service allows participants to maximize their living skills while taking the opportunity to travel into the community. In the interim, caregivers are provided an opportunity to rest and refocus their priorities.
We are staffed with over 25 community habilitation specialists and we provide services for approximately 25 families.
