The Institute for Community Living (ICL) celebrated its 27th anniversary last week at the Ritz Carlton in lower Manhattan. The event was made bittersweet by the departure of Peter Campanelli, ICL’s founder who is retiring after 27 years of service to teach at NYU. This not-for-profit organization, a longtime client of ESKW/A, provides social, medical, and affordable housing services for individuals with mental illness and developmental disabilities – an often overlooked population in New York City.
ESKW/A has built several projects that are tailored to the special needs of ICL, such as space for support services, group activities, rehabilitation, and job search assistance; these projects include Lewis Avenue, Lawton Avenue, Stepping Stone, and Milestone I + II, as well ICL’s Corporate Offices. We are proud to partner with this organization that does so much for this underserved population of our city.
