J-HAP’s Project Will:
Create an innovative, nationally replicable model for adults with developmental disabilities, a population that is living longer and in need of more housing options.
Expand the variety of housing options within a community. The City of Golden Valley has noted they like the J-HAP project because “it increases the variety of housing stock in the[ir] community.”
Increase the quantity and quality of affordable housing available for individuals with developmental disabilities — a population as a whole that is typically well below the poverty level.
Expand the choice of housing options for adults with developmental disabilities, especially those looking for a supportive model to address chronic social isolation, and removing barriers for community inclusion.
Provide continued connection to the spiritual lifestyle of residents’ choice, where individual identity can thrive.
