Our Model

Key Guiding Principles

Co-housing

Where will my SpeciallyAble-d live?

An inclusive Community for SpeciallyAble-d & their parents

Independent Living

How will he/she live independently?

Transition SIs into their own home using SLS (Supported Living Services) and other supports (Independent Living) with Professional Management

Mind-Body-Soul

What kind of activities will he/she have?

Supplement day programs with “Mind-Body-Soul” enrichment programs run by parents including 3-5 “micro businesses” to generate income

Strong support structure

How will my SpeciallyAble-d be supported 7x24x365?

Be a support structure for each other as we gracefully age-in-place with our SIs

Protect the intentionality

How will he/she receive the right Medical, Dental, Vision and other care?

Protect the intentionality of the Community for multiple generations (HOA-like structure to enforce proper use & transfers)

Ownership Model

Decision-making and Governance Model

We have adopted a Consensus-based framework called Sociocracy – for decision-making on key policies. Individual committees operate different aspects of our Community while the big ticket items will have to be managed by the “Committee of the Whole”.

Sociocracy is a decentralized, consensus-based decision-making process that seeks to distribute power equally among all members of a community. It is often used in organizations and communities that want to be more democratic and inclusive. Some of the benefits of sociocracy include increased participation, transparency, and accountability.
