For 25 years, the Institute for Community Living (ICL) has been offering people with psychiatric disabilities the opportunity to lead productive, fulfilling lives within New York City communities. ICL began in 1986 as a product of a doctoral dissertation in Clinical Psychology at Rutgers University by Dr. Peter C. Campanelli, who continues to be our CEO, President and visionary. Through an array of over 100 innovative and award-winning services in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, ICL assists over 9,000 adults, children and families. ICL keeps raising the bar of what is possible for people with significant behavioral challenges and disabilities. Every minute of every day ICL empowers people who would otherwise live on the margins of society, creating accessible and attainable possibilities.

With evidence-based and best practice treatment and pioneering rehabilitation programs, ICL has created a variety of doorways for these individuals to re-enter the mainstream of life. Ranging from a shelter in Queens for 243 veterans of the armed services and a women’s shelter in Brooklyn to over 1,400 housing units and a comprehensive system of clinical treatment options, its team of professionals is able to reach people where they are currently at to help them attain destinations they didn’t know was possible.

ICL realizes that there are always new challenges leading to more effective outcomes for people with serious mental illness and that understanding drives the innovations found throughout the agency. Among the many awards the agency has won, included is a SAMHSA Science to Service award.  Underlying all of our programs and dedication is the goal to assist people with mental and developmental disabilities who would otherwise live on the margins of society through opportunities to improve their quality of life and to participate in community living by providing high quality services and support.  We see it as our role to empower each person to achieve his or her life’s goals and integrate into the community to the fullest extent possible.
