Finding affordable housing is a challenge in most communities. But obtaining suitable housing is a distinct challenge for the special needs community – young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who are ready to live on their own - yet are not fully independent.
The Eva Sophia Project for “differently-abled adults” was created to provide supportive community housing for adults with intellectual disabilities - by giving them a place to live independently, with choice and integration in their community.
The vision is that residents can enjoy decorating their apartments; wake up and go to work; have their friends over; and have pride in where they live.
A group of area parents and individuals committed to this cause, formalized the mission, and have inspired public interest in giving people with intellectual disabilities a place to live on their own.

Providing adults with disabilities an opportunity to live as independently as possible in the community with access to appropriate supportive services, offering integration and choice.
A world where communities welcome individuals with disabilities to live their fullest life through integration with dignity, safety, support, and choice.
