Community of Friends

Living with your peers is something we all choose to do. Our community will provide friendship as well as a sense of belonging in WNY.

Community Minded

Whether going to work, volunteering or another day program, our residents will have a chance to better integrate into their larger WNY community through a variety of programs, social events and their own daily living activities.

Welcome Home

Apartments provide an opportunity for individuals to have their own place, while part of a larger community of friends and like-minded neighbors.

Supported Independence

By design, built in safeguards will provide that extra measure of security to allow individuals the independence they desire.

What do potential residents say?

Jordan Ward

Being able to live on my own is what I really wanted to do. Having my own apartment, like my brother and sisters did is what I want for me.”

Cynthia Munoz

I work at my job three times a week but I want more to do when I’m not working. Hanging out with friends is my favorite thing to do.
