Access to Home

Access to Home

Access to Home is a community collaborative to make houses and apartments of individuals who are elderly, frail or disabled significantly more accessible. Its focus is to reduce housing barriers that lead to nursing home placement and to promote independent living.

Westchester Residential Opportunities, Inc. (WRO) is the lead agency, responsible for overall program coordination. WRO works with property owners, both Landlords and Homeowners, to approve proposed work and then contracts with local firms to make substantial home improvements, such as: widening doorways; lowering kitchen cabinets; bathroom modifications; upgrading exterior ramps; lifts and much more – usually at no cost to the consumer, homeowner or landlord.

Westchester Independent Living Center and Westchester Disabled on the Move screen applicants for eligibility and provide other necessary social services or case management to maximize self-sufficiency.

To request a pre-application for Access to Home, call 914-428-4507 Ext. 315.
