AIM provides supportive housing for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

AIM operates its Supportive Housing Program at three different sites.

We have 15 apartments integrated into a larger apartment complex in the Town of Southport. These units are for Medicaid recipients 55 and older who require assistance with activities of daily living; individuals who are 18 and older with eligibility for services through the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD); and military veterans with disabilities. 

AIM also operates a five-unit apartment complex in the City of Corning for young adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. These apartments provide housing for young adults ages 18-25; as well as young adults who have left foster care within the past five years and were in foster care at or over the age of 16. These apartments were built with funding from the state’s Homeless Housing Assistance Program (HHAP).

AIM also operates apartments in the City of Elmira for people with substance use disorders.

For residents of these supportive housing sites, a rent subsidy is available through the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI). Residents pay 30% of income, less allowances, toward rent. Residents live independently. AIM has staff who advocate for residents and connect them to services available in the community. 

These sites serve a region that encompasses Chemung, Steuben, Schuyler, Allegany and Livingston counties. Placement in AIM’s Supportive Housing Program is through the Southern Tier Entry to Programs and Services (STEPS), part of a coalition which works to address homelessness in the region.
