Affordable Housing Update

Affordable Housing Update

We are continuing in our efforts to develop and build an affordable, supportive Housing Community every day. Project Manager, Denise Anderson, attended a meeting in Orlando with the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council in partnership with the Florida Housing Coalition where she met with the Stakeholder Work Group to assist in the development of a Community Involvement Plan. The plan will provide strategies for the Disability Community to increase participation in local planning processes surrounding affordable, accessible, inclusive housing.

ScentsAbility Board Members met with Boynton Beach City Managers and the Community Redevelopment Agency, joined by Jack Kosik, housing guru and co-founder of Noah’s Arc. At that meeting everyone agreed that Boynton Beach is the perfect city to build our affordable, inclusive community. Stay tuned for more details in the next few months.

In preparation for the future, some of our young adults are practicing by spending weekends away from home. Our goal is to start the transition slowly by planning supervised overnights and paving the way for their path to independence!
