make their dream of
living independent
lives come true.  


The Special Needs Community Initiative was started by parents and community members who saw a need to make the lives of adults with developmental disabilities more productive and fulfilling while attaining some independence. In January 2017, we began brainstroming what the ideal situation for independent living would look like and realized that the co-housing model could be the perfect option. It is our hope to complete the project and have residents living in their forever homes in the near future.

OUR Mission

Our mission is to create and sustain an affordable co-housing community for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities so that they may independently in a safe environment that is rich in opportunities for personal growth through our LEARN, WORK, and PLAY program.
