Specialized Intake Supports

Care Design NY partners with trusted community agencies such as GHO, CPC and Human Care to provide intake services that are not only language-specific but culturally sensitive, so that you can feel comfortable getting the supports you need to live a quality life.

We also work with a translation service to ensure we can guide you through the intake process in your native language, no matter what that is. Contact your Intake Coordinator to request the inclusion of a translator in your intake meeting.
