AccessCNY’s Bridge Services help connect current AccessCNY participants with staff advocates who can provide emotional and logistical support in pursuing personal goals. Our staff can provide support with goals both big and small, including:
- Obtaining Social Security Insurance (SSI), Medicaid and other entitlements
- Applying for housing subsidies (section 8)
- Finding local doctors and mental health professionals (psychiatrists, therapists, etc.)
- Obtaining a representative payee
Participation in the Bridge Program is entirely voluntary and participants are in charge of setting their goals and the supports they want to pursue.
