AIM receives $500K grant to help families struggling with addiction

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - AIM Independent Living Center is known for helping individuals with disabilities lead independent lives, but with a recent grant it's expanding its services.

The nonprofit will provide help to families struggling with addiction and it'll serve the whole community, specifically the Southern Tier. 

The new program awards AIM a five-year, $500,000 grant from the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS).

Family support navigators will be on staff to help individuals and their loved ones understand addiction progression, provide guidance on navigating insurance issues, and offer information on treatment services.

AIM will look to fill the two candidate positions later this fall. The opening will be posted on aimcil.com/jobshr.
