WELCOME TO SMOKEY HOLLOW
A place to live...a place to thrive
Did You Know?
There is a housing crisis for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD), especially those with 24/7 support needs.
Thousands of families in NY State are struggling to find safe, appropriate, permanent housing for their loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
New York State has over 5500 individuals on wait lists for group homes and roughly 2% are placed each year, leaving many individuals in living arrangements that are not sustainable and potentially dangerous.
Smokey Hollow Community's mission is to address the lack of safe, affordable and appropriate housing disproportionately affecting low-income adults with I/DD, especially for those with 24/7 support needs, and to change the culture and understanding of residential choice for individuals with I/DD.
Our vision at Smokey Hollow Community is to establish an alternative residential model; to allow ownership by the individual, provide choice in where and with whom they live, and to continue their accessibility to the greater community.
