Welcome To City Access New York

City Access New York promotes lifelong access to educational, vocational and cultural programs for New Yorkers of all abilities. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that identifies barriers to participation in schools and in the community and adapts the content and delivery of programs to the diverse needs of people with disabilities. 

Everyone here at City Access New York would like to formally thank all of the essential workers who continue to work tirelessly to keep us safe. Stay safe and wear a mask!Posted by City Access New York on Wednesday, July 8, 2020

March 17th, 2020

Today the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) directed temporary suspensions of Day Habilitation and Prevocational Services. 

As of 5:00 PM City Access New York will close their Brooklyn Day Hab Without Walls and Staten Island Day Hab Without Walls. All March Respite trips have been cancelled for both boroughs. We will keep you informed as all updates from the DOH (Department of Health) and OPWDD come in.

Please continue to practice good hygiene, such as washing hands. Social distancing and staying home as much as possible is very important in fighting this virus. We’re hoping that we all do our part and can be back together as soon as possible.

We are a phone call or email away, please contact us if you have questions or suggestions.

Stay strong and safe!
