Integrated model of housing and support for young people in nursing homes

Over the past 5 years, the Summer Foundation has developed and refined a new innovative model of housing and support for people with significant disabilities. This model demonstrates that the provision of good quality housing that is accessible and centrally located improves quality of life and social inclusion, while decreasing reliance on paid supports and reducing life-time care costs.
