Institute for Community Living (ICL)
The Institute for Community Living (ICL) offers people with psychiatric, intellectual and or developmental disabilities the opportunity to lead productive, fulfilling lives within New York City communities. ICL has emerged as a local, regional and national leader in pioneering effective community living services for people with serious mental illness, as well as those with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. In recent years, ICL has reached out to even more New Yorkers, offering accessible, quality health and mental health care, family support, school- based services and more. Today, we touch the lives of over 8,000 people each year in NYC and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
In the wake of the recent disasters, ICL has the opportunity to help survivors rebuild their lives through a one year crisis counseling program called Project Hope. We are looking for staff to work in this program.
