Special Notice

Community Access is hiring peers, full time, part time and per diem.

Last year, Community Access launched a new project to support residents of NYC adult homes who live with mental health concerns as they move out of the adult homes and into community-based supported housing. We’re proud that the New York State Office of Mental Health selected Community Access to run this program – the largest ever state-funded peer employment initiative – because of our unparalleled track record in training and hiring peers. This undertaking follows a long legal process – a class action lawsuit on behalf of 4,300 adult home residents – and Community Access is working to help support these residents in reaching their goals. Community Access is now hiring peers who are enthusiastic about using their life experience to help others.
