http://www.comunilife.orgComunilife has grown into one of NYC’s best-respected community-based health and housing service providers. Each year, our rich continuum of care supports the needs of more than 2,500 low-income and vulnerable New Yorkers.
Comunilife owns or manages 1,250 units of supported transitional and permanent housing for homeless adults struggling with HIV/AIDS, serious mental and behavioral health issues, and other chronic medical conditions. We operate a full-service, Latino-centered, South Bronx-based mental health clinic – the Vida Guidance Center – that supports more than 16,000 outpatient visits a year. Life Is Precious™, our unique suicide prevention program for Latina girls, is gaining national recognition for effectively addressing the needs of the highest-risk group of teenagers in the country; we have just launched a Latino Youth Suicide Prevention Center to disseminate best practice prevention approaches for Latinos of all ages. Through our new Mi Salud initiative, we provide coordinated behavioral and medical care services for older adults with serious psychiatric issues. In addition, through our Medical Respite program, we arrange short-term supportive housing for multiply-challenged patients leaving hospital care without a viable home in which to recuperate.
