Children’s Community Residences

Our Children’s Community Residences, located in Queens and Long Island, provide a structured, supportive, home-like environment for adolescents who are ready for discharge from higher levels of care such as Residential Treatment Facilities and psychiatric hospitals, but are not yet ready to return home.

While in our program, working in conjunction with their family supports, youth learn the skills necessary to live and function as active members of the community, while learning to adopt the necessary coping, self-care and independent living skills necessary to successfully integrate back to the family home and  community.
