The campus design for this new 120-bed facility is modeled after a residential village with a central landscaped courtyard. It provides state-of-the-art care for the multiply disabled, autistic and the medically frail. The design features greenspace, walkways, recreational areas and a picnic pavilion. Each residential building incorporates semi-enclosed courtyards thereby creating a strong relationship between adjacent indoor residential areas, program spaces and outdoor areas.

The 12.5 acre site includes ten 12-bed residential living units and a Program Building. Supporting the residential units are day treatment classrooms, activity areas and workshops, offices and required support services. The projected construction cost of the new facility is $43.2 million. An existing facility was also renovated as part of this project. That facility accommodates an additional 102 consumers. architecture+ provided master planning, programming, conceptual design and schematic design.
