Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

As parents of young adults with special needs, we see firsthand how adults with special needs are one of the most underserved populations in our country.  After High School graduation opportunities for social connections and being a part of the community drop dramatically and adults become isolated.  Almost every parent of a special needs child lives in fear, asking "Where will my child live when I can't care for them any more?" There are solutions and we're doing the work for quality programs and choices for housing that isn't warehousing.

We want to offer a chance at homeownership in a Neuro-Inclusive Neighborhood. A neighborhood that offers a chance of homeownership.

We are building a Neuro-Inclusive neigborhood in Monmouth County New Jersey.

We have teamed up with Three-Oaks Communities out of Ann Arbor Michigan. They have developed neuro-inclusive communities in Michigan. With their guidance and the skill of our builder, KM Hughes Fine Homes we are pursuing land in Monmouth County New Jersey.

We will offer housing, a community center to offer Day Habilitation programs and social interaction. We will have a Community Builder who will live on sight to oversee the Direct Service Personnel who will offer the 24/7 service for this populaton.

We have identified some land in Monmouth County and are currently working with the Town Planning Board to move forward with our vision.
