PROS –Personalized Recovery Oriented Services
PROS on Broadway is a comprehensive recovery-oriented program for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness. The goal is to integrate treatment, support, and rehabilitation in a manner that facilitates recovery.
Through the Corporate Partnering Program of New York State Industries for the Disabled (NYSID), we partner with regional companies, including:
The purpose of the Corporate Partnering Program is to develop business opportunities between Preferred Source agencies and private vendors to provide economic incentives for both partners to create new integrated work opportunities for people with disabilities. Disabled individuals working on NYSID Preferred Source contracts perform the majority of contract work (more than 50%).
Greater awareness of these partnerships has increased private sector competition for state contracts and increased willingness on the part of private companies to employ people with disabilities.
We oversee Employment Contracts within New York State and federal agencies. These Employment Contracts provide employment for persons with disabilities in integrated settings located at NYS agencies ad at federal agencies, such as The Office for Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
