As of 2021, there are approximately 50,000 people living in New York State’s 550 licensed adult care facilities. New York refers to adult homes or assisted living facilities as Adult Care Facilities (ACFs) so we also refer to these residences as such. Of the total for the state, approximately 10,000 residents live in 70 licensed Adult Care Facilities (ACF) in New York City. In total, there are roughly 13,000 low-income residents in the state who receive their income through SSI and SSP.
On an annual basis, CIAD serves approximately 4,350 residents living in 22 facilities in New York City, as well as those who have moved to independent living or supportive housing settings from these facilities. Our advocacy reaches beyond these direct service recipients as we impact ACF policy and practices that improve the quality of life, care and safety for residents throughout New York State. We are honored to be part of this grassroots organization helping and empowering people in our own communities.
