Residential Services

Federation of Organizations provides housing to individuals in Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Our residential services include transitional programs such as community residences, intensive supportive apartment programs and community residences/single room occupancies (CR/SRO), licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health, as well as supportive housing placements.

Community Residences

We operate two community residences in Nassau County.  Our Glen Cove house accommodates 10 residents and our Massapequa site accommodates 9 residents.  Our Community Residence Programs offer on-site staffing, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Services include: medication monitoring and symptom management, community integration including transportation training, banking, shopping, socialization, linkages to psychiatric and medical services in the community, linkages to employment/educational services, etc.   These services and supports provide residents with the skills they need to enable them to move on to less intensive or structured living situations.

Community Residence/Single-Room Occupancy (CR/SRO)

We operate two CR/SROs, one in Queens Village and one in Brentwood, both offering transitional residential living to 50 individuals.  Our Queens Village site is comprised of 22 single studio apartments and 14 two-bedroom apartments.  Our Brentwood location offers 50 single bedrooms with shared cooking and bathrooms.  On-site staffing is provided 24-hours a day, 7 days a week with additional security personnel from 4pm-8am.   Services include: medication monitoring and symptom management, community integration including transportation training, banking, shopping, socialization, linkages to psychiatric and medical services in the community, linkages to employment/educational services, etc.

Intensive Supportive Apartments

Residents reside in apartments or single homes in the community and housing counselors visit several times a week, depending on each individual’s needs and preferences.   Services include: medication monitoring and symptom management, community integration including transportation training, banking, shopping, socialization, linkages to psychiatric and medical services in the community, linkages to employment/educational services, etc.

Supportive Scattered-Site Housing

Federation also offers approximately 350 permanent residential placements. These supportivehousing placements are scattered throughout Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties in apartments and houses in a variety of communities.  Housing counselors meet with individuals who reside in supportive housing several times a month to work on the individual’s goals and service plans.  We also provide specialized supportive housing placements that target vulnerable populations such as shelter-homeless individuals, individuals transitioning out of adult home settings and HUD homeless populations.

Our residential programs are able to accommodate individuals who are referred directly from acute hospitals and state facilities to assist with stabilization and integration back into the community.
