Evidence of Program's Success

Homes of Their Own!
Over 10,000 adults with disabilities in Colorado live with caretakers who are over 60 years old. What will happen when caretakers are no longer there? Adults with intellectual disabilities deserve a place where they can live independently and safely - where they are encouraged to become the very best versions of themselves. But with an average disability income of $1750 per month, these folks are priced out of the current real estate market. As one parent tells us: "My wake up call came when my husband passed away suddenly at age 65. Suddenly, I was faced with the question 'What happens to my daughter when I am gone, too?'"
