Its comprehensive, person-centered recovery approach helps with everything from employment to housing.

Located in East Harlem, this successful transitional living program provides a first step on the road back for people who need a supportive structure while they work to achieve a clean and sober lifestyle, psychiatric stability, and independent living. Every year, MHA-NYC helps people break the cycle of homelessness, untreated mental illness, and substance abuse with compassionate treatment and support.
Recovery Works participants work with staff to establish skill-building activities in the areas of:
- Relapse prevention
- Mental health support
- Medication management
- Healthy living
- Employment assistance
- Financial management and budgeting
Additionally, residents are dually enrolled in MHA's Harlem Bay Network PROS program, where they engage in clinical treatment and rehabilitative services to support recovery and empower them to pursue their life goals. Download the Recovery Works referral form.
In FY2012, Recovery Works increased the numbers of chronically homeless served by 13% while, at the same time, moving 67% of our consumers into permanent, stable housing.
MHA-NYC provides permanent supported housing to single adults with serious and persistent mental illness, couples, or parents with one child in scattered-site studios or larger apartments in the Bronx and East Harlem.
Many of the consumers served by these programs have histories of homelessness, multiple psychiatric hospitalizations, substance abuse, and/or are parents whose goal is to reunite with their children.
This year, Supported Housing more than doubled the number of residents employed, enrolled in school, or in an on-the-job training position.
