Unhappy NYC rooms for developmentally challenged, NEED help? Thanks

Hello Everyone, I'm new here and Desperately looking for Agencies or Organizations that help to place developmentally challenged adults, in either a room (studio included), in order to get them off the streets?
My Gideon has been in the shelter system twice (as far as I know they're NOT even aware of his "mental challenges") but says he won't go back because of the 'conditions', and the fact that he only reads and writes on a "1st-2nd grade level", is a hindrance here as well.
Do you think there is any place that can help him before winter sets in? Thanks everyone, blessings.

Hi Helpall, I hope we can help YOU, and your godson! is he eligible for services through OPWDD? https://opwdd.ny.gov/ Have you been working with any social workers? Some are better than others. Maybe this organization could help you; they are dedicated to getting people with disabilities the services they need.
