The Arc Alliance is looking to create a unique alternative to the typical options families currently have available. The Special Tiny House on Wheels is a unique option enabling individuals not only to live independently after graduation from high school but also a way that both the individual and family can develop confidence and experience in a safe and close to the families home environment.
The house can be uniquely designed for the individual and the family can decide where the house will be located on their property. This is an opportunity to teach your loved one to be more independent while still being close in proximity in case a parent is needed. The tiny house will be owned by the special needs individual and can be moved to another site in the future. Not only can this be a learning experience for the family but the future will open up to many options for the individual in his/her future.
