A PURPOSEFUL COMMUNITY

The Link is a community-centered residential development that connects people of all ages and abilities through co-living opportunities that promote meaningful interactions and pathways to independence.

A PLACE EVERYONE CAN CALL HOME

The Link brings together caring neighbors and adults with intellectual/ developmental disabilities (I/DD) to create a co-living opportunity that fosters community bonds while providing residents a chance to live in a historic Utica neighborhood.

COMMUNITY-CENTERED LIVING WITHOUT BOUNDARIES

The Link is a community-centered residential development located in Utica, NY. Our mission is to connect people of all ages and abilities through co-living opportunities that promote meaningful interactions and pathways to independence. With a city-centered location, The Link offers easy accessibility to transit, employment opportunities and leisure. Within walking distance are grocery stores, restaurants and a hospital.

 

The typical housing choices for an adult with I/DD are either living at home with a family caregiver or living in a state-certified housing facility. Self-advocates and caregivers have overwhelmingly expressed an interest in non-certified, community-based housing choices. Co-living housing options, like The Link also give families a greater peace of mind - as caregivers age and become unable to provide support they are often concerned about what will happen to their loved ones with needs. 

 

Through co-living opportunities and enriching on-site activities, The Link will give people with developmental disabilities a greater quality of life, encourage independence and foster community-based relationships.
