Although much progress has been made, adults with disabilities continue to be woefully underserved when they reach the “cliff” at age 21 and lose the very things that confer independence and bring passion and meaning into their lives. At Main Street Connect, three years of effective programming – social, emotional, and quality-of-life experiences like movie nights, restaurant outings, health and wellness classes, parent-sibling support groups, concerts, and more (virtual, in-person, or hybrid as the situation demands) – are supplemented by an inclusive affordable housing and community center for people with and without disabilities. They work to expand safety protocols and communications to help residents and members be and feel safe. This space and support is profound – a long-overdue departure from the norm, with extraordinary promise for the future.
