CCM’s Rico’s Place, named for a charismatic founding staff member who died of AIDS, opened in 1999. The residence provides specialized supportive housing for families where at least one member is living with AIDS.
The building’s 14 units are home to families referred from the New York State Division of AIDS Services and the New York City Department of Homeless Services.
Rico’s Place is more than just a home, working also to provide stabilization, medication, better health care, employment and other services to help residents with AIDS live long, independent lives. In 1999, Rico’s Place was awarded a HOPWA Special Project of National Significance Award.
