The Independence Village offers room & board to adults with developmental and/physical disabilities in a comfortable, supervised, family setting. We provide a safe home with private living quarters. Balanced meals and assistance as needed with daily responsibilities. We encourage independence and promote community integration by maintaining an active presence in the area, holding fundraisers and participating in area events.
Our privately funded non-profit residence cares for approximately Twenty five residents ranging in age from 20 to 70 years. Our residents are individuals with Down Syndrome, developmental disabilities, or brain injury who need minimal assistance in their daily living. Some of our residents are employed either part-time or full-time.
Although each individual has the opportunity and is encouraged to participate in the community in many ways, the place they call “home” is their Independence Village. The Village includes large suites with living rooms, spacious closets and built in chest of drawers, bathrooms designed for the physically challenged, as well as community areas including a large den and entertainment center. For over 20 years Independence Village staff members have provided a loving and caring home where a family atmosphere is encouraged and fostered.
