Community Access, Inc. (CA) is a progressive, entrepreneurial nonprofit organization in New York City that since 1974 has helped thousands of people diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities to make the transition from hospitals and shelters to independent living. We hold a core belief that with the right support people living with mental illness can recover and lead productive lives. We operate numerous programs including supportive housing for more than 1,000 people in New York City, an award-wining job training center (Howie the Harp) for peer advocates, an arts collective, a pet therapy and adoption program, and other initatives that foster recovery and wellness. Community Access has a staff of 350 and an annual operating budget of over $25 million.
