Housing for Adults with FASD Workgroup
Individuals who have experience searching for, finding, or creating housing opportunities for special needs adults are welcome to join the group and should consider themselves professionals on this subject. FASD caregivers, self-advocates, residential staff, housing specialists, and housing rights advocates may be particularly interested in joining.
Contact Jackie Wille at email@example.com to join or to ask questions about this SIG. Please put FASD Housing Group in the subject line.
Aloha Community Platteville
We have a beautiful, five-bedroom home that sits on four lush acres outside Platteville, Wisconsin. Our young adults can thrive in a structured, calm environment that combines the safety of 24-hour staff oversight with the coziness of a home – not an institution. Each resident will have her own bedroom with access to communal spaces where they can watch movies, play video games or just relax. Additionally, our expansive property allows for plenty of outdoor activities.
