SCI Forum Schedule


Wednesday, October 24, 2018, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm


New Ideas for Residential Living

Living independently and having autonomy over your life is often a goal for people with disabilities. Doing this efficiently, effectively, and affordably can be difficult on your own. Movements to create sharing models like virtual villages, co-housing, pocket neighborhoods, and other residential models of living are growing around the country. By sharing resources and services like personal care, transportation, and household help, residents can reduce expenses, expand social connections, and improve security. We will have presenters from three different models in alternative and supported living. QUAD, Inc. offers affordable, accessible housing and personal care in Portland, Oregon. Luna Azul is a residential community for adults with physical and intellectual disabilities in Arizona. Wider Horizons is a virtual village for aging adults in Seattle’s Central District. These grassroots organizations were started by the very people who needed solutions in their lives. Meet the leaders, hear their stories, and learn about these exciting and novel models of living.
