We need your Help
Funds are needed to help our Individuals with:
* Personal Protective Equipment
* Funds to help cover additional resources to cope with COVID19
Dear Friends & Supporters,
During this time of COVID-19 Pandemic please know that keeping the people we support and our staff healthy remains our top priority. ANIBIC is carefully stocking our programs with food, household supplies and other items and are making emergency plans to meet the health and safety needs of the individuals.
Due to the current situation we are facing, ANIBIC fundraising and special events are postponed for the foreseeable future. As a direct result, we are not receiving the private funds that we count on to sustain the critical support we provide.
We ask that you please DONATE NOW to help offset the loss of funding. All contributions received will be put to immediate use to help us care for our ANIBIC Individuals and to help offset unexpected expenses and the toll that COVID-19 is taking on our agency.
If you can help ANIBIC by donating personal protective equipment and supplies listed below, please contact us 718-423-9550.
- Boxes of gloves – Med, Lg, & XL
- Face shields
- N95 masks
- Bottles of Isopropyl Alcohol
- Boxes of alcohol wipes
- Surgical masks
- Lysol Wipes Containers
- Braun thermometer/ear covers
- Lysol spray disinfectant
To make a monetary donation and help us cover the exorbitant costs related to purchasing these items, we would be forever grateful.
We know that these are challenging times but we wouldn’t make this urgent request if it wasn’t necessary to protect our individuals. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support during this difficult time.
Please visit our website and keep an eye on social media for up to date information www. Anibic.org and on social media.

Health Advisory: COVID-19 Guidance for Operators of Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs), Community Residences (CRs) and Private Schools Regarding Visitation
COVID-19 has been detected in multiple communities around New York State. Visitors may introduce COVID-19 infection into the facility. The New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) is issuing the following guidance regarding visitors to IRAs, CRs and Private Schools and other precautions and procedures such facilities must take to protect and maintain the health and safety of their residents and staff during the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
To prevent the introduction of COVID-19 into IRAs, CRs and Private Schools:
Effective immediately, suspend all visitation except when medically or clinically necessary (i.e. visitor is essential to the care of the resident). In addition:
• Any visitors meeting these exceptions must be screened for symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, or fever) or potential exposure to someone with COVID-19 and the duration and number of visits should be minimized.
• IRAs, CRs and Private Schools should attempt to provide other forms of communication to meet the needs of their residents.
• IRAs, CRs and Private Schools must post signage notifying the public of the suspension of visitation in all facility entrances and in parking lots. In addition, these policies should be posted to the facility’s website and social media pages.
Thank you for your efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
