Building an Intentional Community
We are a group of families with adult sons and daughters on the autism spectrum that saw a common problem on the horizon and decided to act now. We each bring a distinct set of skills to this endeavor and the passion to see it through.
As public policy changes nationwide regarding where these neurodiverse adults will live, groups like ours are leading the charge to create intentional communities that provide a sustainable housing solution to this growing problem.
Our goal is to build an inclusive long-term rental housing community for adults with autism and other neurodiversities. This community would incorporate Smart technology into each small home and be built with environmentally conscious building practices. Our first “Connected Community” will consist of approximately 20 to 25 small homes built around a central "social" courtyard and shared space with access to public transit and greenspace.
We hope that our first community in Wilmington will be a pilot model for other communities around the country. We continue to reach out to city and government officials for input and keep up with zoning changes in our area.
