What We Do

 

Providing individualized, comprehensive care


 Promoting personal independence and dignity


CRC provides *residential care for 72 individuals with developmental disabilities in the Bronx, Manhattan and Southern Westchester.  We operate two types of residential care:

Intermediate Care Facilities, or ICF, provides comprehensive and individualized health care, rehabilitation services, and 24-hour support to promote maximal functioning and independence.


Individual Residential Alternative, or IRA, provides room, board, 24-hour support and supervision, individualized care, and person-centered life plans. Helping to create their own life plans allows individuals to make informed choices about the services and supports that can  best help them enhance and enjoy the most important areas of their live, such as health, relationships, work, and home.

CRC also provides community habilitation services to help individuals improve daily living skills while integrating and building relationships in the community. 

*The Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) directs all referrals for placement into our residences.  To learn more, please visit: http://www.opwdd.ny.gov.


How to apply

The Office for People with Developmental Disabilities' (OPWDD) Front Door approach gives individuals who are seeking services for the first time, or who want to modify their current plans, opportunities to direct their own care.  From the first time someone enters the Front Door, they, along with their family and circle of support, will receive valuable guidance in identifying the steps necessary to access services within and beyond OPWDD.  For more information please visit: https://opwdd.ny.gov/how-do-i/apply-services.


"My son Jermaine has been with CRC for 20 years. The transition has been easier for him than for me. The road has not been easy but definitely necessary. Mr. Meade has always been understanding of my questions and concerns which I am forever grateful. Prior to my son entering CRC, I had a great concern about his ability to function in the world considering his disability.  I did the best I could but knew there had to be more for him. CRC has taught him how to live a life and not fit into the world’s idea of normalcy. With the support of Mr. Meade and his staff, I was given the strength and knowledge to become a great advocate for my son and others." - Ella B., Parent
