Elmira District Community Living

Elmira District Community Living in partnership with Elmira Developmental Support Corporation are taking on the monumental task of creating intentional communities for individuals living with an intellectual disability.  We’ve built four!  Your donation will go towards the creation of the next apartment building.  This building will provide safe, affordable housing to at least six individuals who live with an intellectual disability.  We will have two units designated to “good neighbours” who act as a social safety network to the other people living in the building.  Two major hurdles that prevent housing success for many people with an intellectual disability are affordable housing and social isolation.  Intentional communities are about building spaces that remove these barriers.  Your donation will make a difference.  Help us grow.
