Services

At ILA, our person-centered programs consistently receive praise from our Individuals, their families, and regulatory agencies. Our Residential Services provide quality care to ensure that intellectually and physically challenged individuals live in the safest environment possible and are able to reach their full potential.

Participants in ILA’s Community and Day Habilitation Programs also achieve greater independence though enhanced daily living skills and social inclusion. ILA’s highly trained staff works closely with each Individual to set and attain new goals so they can thrive.

For more information on ILA’s programs and services, please call 718-852-2000 or email us at info@ilaonline.org.

Residential Services

All of our houses are designed to complement the surrounding community. When entering our residences, you will find a well-appointed kitchen, dining facilities, bedrooms and recreational areas. Our round-the-clock maintenance staff and professional landscapers keep our homes in peak condition.

Day Habilitation

At ILA we offer day habilitation services to provide important skill-building activities, and enable our Individuals to spend time in the community. From trips to the movies to walks in the park and time at a museum or a local restaurant, we encourage our Individuals to make the most of what New York City has to offer!

Community Habilitation

Support staff meet with Individuals at their respective homes and accompanies them to and from each activity. Pre-vocational training is provided at a number of volunteer sites to prepare program participants for possible employment, while giving them a strong sense of accomplishment.
