In every county of New York State, Care Coordination Organization/Health Homes (CCO/HHs) support individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) through all stages of life. CCO/HH Care Managers coordinate services and supports to address all social determinants of health, including health care, employment, housing, community relationships and resources for economic stability.
This includes over 75,000 individuals who live at home and depend on coordinated services, and over 36,000 individuals who require 24/7 care and oversight.
Our mission is to ensure that all New Yorkers with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities can continue to access services for fulfilling, meaningful, and inclusive lives in our communities, especially in the face of this pandemic.
