Your Donations are Helping to House Adults with Developmental Differences
VISIONS for Creative Housing Solutions is a nonprofit organization that provides residential options, services, and support to help adults with developmental disabilities and similar disabling conditions lead more independent, fulfilling lives. They believe that everyone deserves a chance to live with autonomy and purpose, and they strive to offer their residents the support they need to achieve that.
One of VISIONS' primary focuses is to help adults with developmental and similar disabilities transition from their aging parents' care to a stable, reliable, and caring environment. They offer wrap-around supports designed to facilitate long-term friendships, a sense of well-being, and self-worth, as well as an inclusive community that fosters independence, respect, and dignity.
With two existing locations and a third under development, the VISIONS' model has proven to promote self-determination, autonomy, and independence by providing tailored support that helps residents grow and thrive. They offer 24/7 oversight of each individual in their care, together with a wide range of support services designed to meet the specific needs of each resident, such as employment, transportation, health and medical oversight, life skills development, relationship building, and social and recreational opportunities.
Living among a caring circle of friends, with individualized wrap-around support services, allows each person to lead an engaged and fulfilled life, as a contributing member of the community. The VISIONS model gives each resident a chance to live a fulfilling, successful life with the dignity they deserve.
"When you give an undesignated gift through Granite United Way, it's so meaningful to organizations like ours. It's wonderful for us to be able to grow and support our residents with grants that do not have specific restrictions on how to use those dollars."
- Sylvia Kluge Dow, Executive Director of VISIONS for Creative Housing Solutions
