As the widowed mother of a 38 year old son, I feel the urgency of a community such as this. Living as independently as possible is a crucial element for my son's future. Jobs, community interaction and friendship are integral parts of all of our lives and is certainly a vital part of the developmentally disabled adults lives as well. With the assistance of loving, caring volunteers and well trained staff, this will become a reality. The future of OSPREY VIllage is comforting to me and crucial for my son.

With 2600 developmentally disabled people on the DDSN waiting list in SC, would you rather wait for the state to figure out how to meet this need or have a nonprofit like OSPREY Village tap into the private enterprise resources to come up with a solution that serves more people at a lower cost with better outcomes? This "neighborhood with a purpose" idea is one whose time has come!

The best concept ever for solving the underserved developmently disabled adult population. Homes are desperately needed here in South Carolina. This idea will work nation wide. Companionship, friends, jobs, volunteering and community involvement are just a few of the opportunities for this more than capable population.

I am the mother of a 42 year old daughter who is mentally disabled. There is currently NO group homes in our local community. We are building OSPREY Village to be a " Community with a Purpose". Mentally challenged adults will be 1/3 of the population while 2/3 will be family members, retires, an anyone who wants to live in the community an volunteer 4 hours a week to assist our challenged residents. They, in turn will volunteer for those living in the community!

The charm of OSPREY Village will be very appealing. Cottages with window boxes enhancing the large front porches, a "Village Green" where friends can meet, play frisbee, or sit an enjoy the activity of others! A community "Grilling Area" will allow for frequent gatherings of community an friends.

As a widow, I realize the vital importance of OSPREY Village. It will give my daughter an others a true home where the values of "Gentle Teaching" will be in place, a homey atmosphere, an genuine community involvement to help make their lives "The Best" they can be.

Mentally Challenged residents of OV will have the opportunity to achieve their highest potential of independence with qualified 24/7 house staffing, a job coach, and a community that supports them daily!
