Impact

Housing individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in personalized home settings developed for them and by them. These living arrangements are their own living space that cater to their own likes/dislikes. As a non-certified housing opportunity, independent living is fully supported

Recent Work

These residences continue to promote independent living for our I/DD individuals and provide the opportunity for an advance quality of life.

Future Goals

Continual growth for additional I/DD individuals to live in their own customized housing apartments. These residential living sites are designed to fit the personalized needs of each individual in a smaller setting.
