The demand for affordable housing options for adults with autism and other disabilities in Howard County is rapidly growing. The HCAS Housing Committee has spent more than two years researching supportive housing models from across the country that could be adapted to address this pressing need. This process led HCAS to identify the intentional, intergenerational community model as an approach that could bring inclusive, affordable housing to Howard County. The model has been used successfully to support child welfare-involved populations in award-winning communities such as Bridge Meadows in Portland, Oregon, where it’s demonstrated effectiveness in increasing housing stability and reducing social isolation.
