Building at 1001 James St.

Liberty Resources announces the acquisition of a third Syracuse office building on James Street. The purchase of 1001 James St. will allow Liberty Resources to expand services at 1045 James St. in space vacated by former tenants. Nearly 6,000 square feet will be renovated to accommodate the growth of Liberty Resources Integrated Health Care—with eight new primary care exam rooms and expanded behavioral health and substance abuse services.

Liberty Resources acquired the 24,000-square-foot 1001 James St. building (at the corner of James and Oak Streets where NBT Bank is) in late 2016 and made significant improvements to the building. The Liberty Resources Health Home division will co-locate its growing staff, serving adults and children, into one location at 1001 James St.

In 2017, the Liberty Resources Integrated Health Care at 1045 James St. is projected to serve more than 1,700 adults, children, and families with behavioral health needs. Through a SAMHSA funded Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI) grant, Liberty Resources continues to expand access to behavioral health and primary care services in the Syracuse community, as well as increasing early identification and intervention of chronic health conditions, promoting health education and prevention, and ultimately improving the overall health of children and adults with mental illness or substance abuse. Toward that end, Liberty Resources has filed an application for an Outpatient Substance Use Disorder License.

As one of Central New York’s most diverse and trusted human service agencies, Liberty Resources is a dynamic and constantly evolving multi-service integrated health care and behavioral health provider. Six primary programmatic systems include: outpatient care for mental health and primary care; community-based and residential behavioral health services (including substance use disorder, traumatic brain injury, HIV/AIDS residential services); child welfare community treatment services; intellectual disabilities services; Liberty POST early intervention services; and integrated care management.

Headquartered in Syracuse, Liberty Resources employs more than 1,200 professional staff providing shelter, treatment, assistance, counseling and support to nearly 15,000 individuals and families and operates services across New York State, as well as a significant presence in Texas and expansion in Central Florida.
