Programs: Agency OverviewOver the years, we have developed a wide array of housing options throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Bronx Queens and Montgomery County, PA. We also operate an array of scattered site supported housing units for people who have no further need for the intensive case management and rehabilitation services afforded in the more structured residential programs. Beyond shelter, we operate a comprehensive system of clinical treatment options and rehabilitation programs within the Brooklyn community.For individuals who are developmentally disabled, we operate Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) and Individualized Rehabilitation Alternative (IRA). Each ICF accommodates individuals who formerly lived in institutional settings. These individuals are severely and profoundly retarded; and while they are adults, they require continued ongoing supervision. An IRA provides housing; rehabilitation; and support to those mentally retarded/developmentally disabled individuals who are in need of a less restrictive environment. Unlike an ICF where most decisions are made by a team, residents are more active in the decision making process.

The agency recently began forming its own behavioral health care network through two major program initiatives. We became a comprehensive mental health provider when it recently finalized an affiliation with the Bensonhurst Guidance Center (ADBA The Guidance Center BGC/GC). BGC is an Article 31 licensed mental health treatment program which also holds a substance abuse treatment license. BGC has been providing mental health services to the surrounding Bensonhurst community since 1980. Its addition gives ICL a child, family and substance abuse treatment capacity it formerly did not have. The Guidance Center will be expanding its services to reach the Prospect Park and Fort Green communities. The Brooklyn Hospital Center (BHC) has been providing quality medical services to the people of Brooklyn for over 100 years. BHC and ICL have joined forces to create the first Article 28 medical care needs of disabled people under one umbrella. The Center for Specialized Ambulatory Care Services (SACS) opened its doors on March 1, 1999. Having been created from a pre-existing BHC Article 28 clinic and it is located in the Sunset Park Area of Brooklyn. Fredrik Alley, President of BHC noted that this venture represents an exciting opportunity to join with a community based agency in providing high quality and integrated medical and mental health population that has long had its care fragmented.Finally, we will be expanding its Manhattan operation when an affiliate, ICL Joselow House, Inc. opens a 15 bed Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) for those people who have mild mental retardation and are also blind. These three ventures represent the strategic vision of ICL to emerge in the new millennium as a comprehensive behavioral care network serving the health care needs of disabled people.

At the center of ICL are the people that are served and the communities in which they live. The agency provides evidence based and best practice innovative treatments, rehabilitation programs and support services to over 8,000 people in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania; offering over 1,200 housing units and a comprehensive system of clinical treatment options.
