Open Doors Transition Center
Open Doors Peer Support Program
NYAIL's Open Doors Peer Support Program is designed to offer people who are considering or in the process of transitioning one-on-one support through the process by individuals who have lived the experience. These peers are willing to share their stories and real-world experience that demonstrates people with disabilities can and do live successfully in the community.
The Good Neighbor Program
The Good Neighbor Program is designed to assist individuals residing in nursing homes to return to the community. It can fill crucial gaps in an individuals’ support network. Neighbors are paid to provide support and backup care to assist individuals returning to living in their communities. In addition, Neighbors serve a role in breaking down social isolation and building engagement within the community. Social activity, building neighborly relationships and independent community living play important roles in health and happiness.
The Good Neighbor Program is part of the Open Doors program funded through the NYS Department of Health Money Follows the Person Program.
