Help us with our mission.

IAHD’s commitment to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families remains as strong as ever, but quality programs require abundant resources. Your donations will help us support people by making their expression of choice and hope possible.


Solutions for everyone

Family Support Services

IAHD provides a multitude of supports and services to assist individuals and their families with accessing the full range of resources available to them. Medicaid Service Coordination, parent training, respite and entitlement assistance are just a few of the services we offer to individuals and their families. Every activity upholds IAHD’s commitment to assisting families.


Residential Services

Home should be a special place that offers comfort and provides a sense of belonging. IAHD’s homes are located in urban and suburban settings in both Bronx and Westchester Counties. Individuals are encouraged to become active members of their community by participating in all of the events their neighborhoods have to offer. Our homes and apartments are available to fit different needs and lifestyles.


Day Services and Individualized Supports

Our Day Services and Individualized Supports program assists individuals with helping to achieve personal dreams by offering creative activities specifically tailored to one’s interests. IAHD also provides therapeutic skills development to maximize opportunities for learning, self-actualization and socialization. A broad menu of options allows people to explore, discover and choose what works for them.

A Midwinter Evening of Art, Wine & Jazz to Benefit IAHD

The winter for most of us is a time to hibernate, hunker down until spring arrives. Winter can be a season full of beauty and contrasts. On Wednesday February 8, the day before the NY metro area got slammed with a snowstorm, the moon was nearly full and the temperature was a balmy 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The Briarcliff Manor that evening, was turned into an art gallery featuring local artists and artisans alongside artwork created by our IAHD Day program participants -- paintings, jewelry and ceramics. As this was the week before Valentine's Day the artists, artisans, musicians and venue pulled out all the stops to create a memorable evening to benefit IAHD.


The Recipe for Independence: Support, Friends, Family

When most of us moved away from our childhood homes to our own places, we were excited to achieve independence, yet, still happy to go home for holiday celebrations, to have a parent help decorate the apartment and be able to meet and socialize with our new neighbors. Yes, living on our own is great, but there is always apprehension and a lot of learning that takes place along the way as we learn to balance independence and responsibility. This year, Victor, who is supported at IAHD through Self-Direction, moved from a certified apartment to his own place, and his success was assisted by his Community Habilitation worker and friend, Senovio Hernandez. On February 7th, Senovio was recognized as Employee of the Month, for his dedication in helping Victor succeed in independent living.
