How We Help

Homelessness, mental illness, substance use, learning disabilities – these are things that can happen to anyone – at any time in their lives.

At ICL, our committed staff provide a range of services to New Yorkers of all backgrounds with behavioral, emotional and physical challenges on their path to recovery and greater health and well-being.

In programs throughout the five boroughs – a range of housing, treatment, family and child and developmental disabilities services – every person is treated as a unique individual – not by their diagnosis or symptoms. They are supported to take charge of their lives, overcome serious challenges, to secure employment, permanent housing, and – where possible – reunite with families.

Our person-centered, trauma-informed approach to services leads to extraordinary outcomes, consistently reducing the need for hospitalizations and emergency room visits for mental health reasons and most important of all – we’re seeing people lead the best life possible, the life they dream of.

We begin the work wherever a person is in their lives, whatever neighborhood they have come from, or the problems they have endured.

If you are not sure what services fit your needs, our Central Access team can answer your questions.

Our Services

ICL helps people living with mental illness, substance use and developmental disabilities live healthier and more fulfilling lives. Our services are built on four-pillars of care — person-centered, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented, and an integrated health model. We break through traditional silos of service and look at the whole person and their full range of health and behavioral health needs.

Through our innovative residential and community-based services in some 100+ programs across the city, we provide people with the support to be better, feel better and live better.
