Cardinal Hayes Home provides residential care and treatment for young people who are developmentally disabled.  Primarily serving the Mid-Hudson region of New York State, with some admissions from the New York metropolitan area, CHH gives equal consideration to children from all races, creeds and socio-economic backgrounds.

The children and young adults who reside at the Home are developmentally disabled with a primary diagnosis of intellectual disability.  Some are autistic, others have cerebral palsy, epilepsy or neurological impairment.  The agency can provide care for children who are medically fragile if their special health needs are secondary to their intellectual disability.  There is 24-hour staffing on the Millbrook campus and in the community homes.  Currently operating at capacity with 119 young people in residence, the agency maintains a wait list.

We accept children:

• age 16 and under at time of admission
• ambulatory and non-ambulatory
• medically fragile in stable condition
• special dietary requirements
• in need of ICF level of care placement

We are not able to accept children:

• requiring 24-hour skilled nursing care
• with tracheotomies
• under the age of 2
• requiring palliative or hospice care on admission

Referrals can be made through various avenues; certain material is required as part of a referral.  To discuss placement needs and obtain information about the referral process or any of the services offered by the agency, contact:
