LIFE Village Inc. is developing an affordable, inclusive, and supportive residential community for adults with autism and related Intellectual and Developmental Disorders.  LIFE House is an initiative that will start LIFE Village on a smaller scale with rental home options.  This model will provide housing for two adults with diverse abilities and one live-in support staff (Residential Support Staff or RSS).  Please fill out this survey, with assistance from your parent(s) or guardian if needed, so that we can start the process of identifying interested/perspective residents.  **Please note: this survey does not guarantee a rental agreement and/or support services from LIFE Village Inc. nor should it be considered a waiting list.  The intention of this survey is to help LIFE Village and LIFE House to develop the most appropriate programming and services, and to identify those individuals who are interested in this supportive living model.
