Nursing Home Diversion

Federation of Organizations’ Nursing Home Diversion Supportive Housing Program offers supportive housing in Nassau and Suffolk Counties with enriched support services to individuals who qualify for nursing home level of care but wish to remain in the community. Our goal is to provide a safe living environment with medical coordination of care, social supports and daily living supports for individuals with disabilities who do not want to be displaced from their homes, are transitioning out of nursing homes or need a place to live and can remain stable without long term institutional care.

 

Federation has been providing housing for people with disabilities for over 20 years. Federation currently serves over 400 individuals in housing in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens.  We offer a variety of housing options with individualized support services designed to assist each resident with living in the community of their choice successfully.

Permanent, safe, affordable housing with enriched supports are the core services offered in this program.
