Adult Protective Services

The Adult Protective Services Program (APS) provides services for physically and/or mentally impaired adults. APS works to help at-risk clients live safely in their homes. APS clients can be referred by anyone. Find more information on referrals or make a referral here or call DSS OneNumber at 718-557-1399. If an individual is eligible for an assessment, a home visit will be made in three business days or in 24 hours if the situation is life-threatening.

For more information on what qualifies an individual for APS and what factors are taken into consideration during a home visit, view the APS Brochure. You can view the interactive version of the APS Brochure here.
