Our vision is to build a community where our adult children can live as independently as possible. We envision a mixture of dormitory style housing as well as duplexes with one- and two-bedroom units. Each unit will have a common area as well as a small kitchen for preparation of meals.
We also envision having a dining hall to ensure the residents will have meals available to them. The common area will have a game room, a library, and other activities for the residents.
We would like to have every resident to have a job to give them a sense of purpose. Whether that is on campus or off-campus. We will have job coaches on staff to help the residents achieve these goals. Everyone is capable of doing something meaningful and to have a purpose.
