To elevate the quality of life for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by creating a dynamic housing community enriched with customized programming where every person will be empowered to live with purpose and joy.
WHAT IS 29 ACRES?
29 Acres is an innovative supported living community for adults with ASD and other neuro-diversities designed to elevate quality of life by creating an environment that results in greater joy, self-fulfillment, and independence.
Located in Cross Roads, TX, just 30 minutes north of Dallas, the property is comprised of 29 acres of gently-rolling, heavily-wooded terrain with numerous meadows and fields. We are close to two major lakes that will be used in our therapeutic recreation program and minutes away from over 100 miles of walking and biking trails at two large state parks. We are also within minutes of two major universities and several major cities in north Dallas, allowing a clear path for our residents to be connected to their local communities.
29 Acres will offer evidence based and customized programming for each resident to ensure tangible growth in the areas of career readiness/employment and independent living, while prioritizing relationship building, and good health and emotional well-being. While 29 Acres programming (Enrich29) will be available to all individuals living with us, residents will be encouraged to use the service provider of their choice.
As part of our commitment to continuously improve programming, we will hold ourselves accountable to outcomes, including quality of life indicators.
By partnering with local and regional universities and organizations, 29 Acres will serve as a training site for service providers and help to advance best practices in adult autism services. We will look for partners and research opportunities that help to advance best practices.
Our living community will be built for safety and security by connecting smart phones with smart homes through state of the art technology.
The homes at 29 Acres can be a first home or permanent home depending on our residents’ needs and their preferences for living.
