Review for ENC, Inc, Marshfield, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

“Everyone Needs a Community” is a project spearheaded by a number of people in the Marshfield, WI area who are interested in developing appropriate housing for special needs individuals. Since first hearing about it in a presentation at our church, I have been very interested in seeing it come to completion.
Although I do not have someone close to me who is in the special needs group, we have had interactions with members of this group and find them to be very able to be a productive part of the community if given a chance. Viable housing options would be one more step in the right direction to assist them with blending into the community and feeling a sense of belonging that is so important to all of us.
Being able to be somewhat independent with assistance from those supervising the housing, the individuals will have more potential for growth and development that is not as likely when dependent on family and living in a situation where they may not take as much responsibility for their activities and making new friends. The spectrum of people ENC anticipates serving is wide and varied. This group will need some assistance at times but will likely thrive being with others who have special needs and accommodations. It will allow them to feel more “normal” and prove they have a place in society and can function in a more independent environment.
