Our residential program provides a variety of options based upon the level of support and/or training needed by each person. Lifespire has houses in all five boroughs of New York City as well as Westchester and Ulster County. Any person who has a diagnosis of an intellectual/developmental disability with accompanying adaptive or functional challenges is eligible for our residential services.

Intermediate Care Facilities: Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) provide a round-the-clock program for a person with specific medical and/or behavioral needs who requires the maximum level of support and training in a community setting.

Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRA) are homes where the person develops his/her community living skills through the Home and Community Based Waiver Program (HCBS).

Supportive Apartments and Independent Living offer a setting designed to foster community inclusion for an adult capable of living with minimal supervision and support available in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.

The Lubin Center for Independent Living is a Section 202 Housing Program under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for an individual capable of independent living and employment. Occupancy of this project is limited to persons with a developmental disability, limited income and a critical need for housing.

Individualized Support Services  provide non-certified housing options for a person who wishes to access independent living arrangements rather than traditional congregate care settings.
