Manchester Community Library
Our community has a growing number of young adults having "special needs" who are quickly aging out of the school system, but the need for support does not just end when they leave school. While there have been efforts made to balance human rights, concerns, and the growing need for community cohesion, our area remains an untapped resource. We will provide integration into the community for these young adults by providing stability, nurturing, and a more fulfilling life. The target customer is the protected class that has no choice and is discriminated against by their situation. Positioning is our pioneering approach that has been successful in other parts of the world. The marketing tactics are to make a connection with state and federal agencies and other with intent of the well-being of the differently abled.
There is a significant gap between the housing needed and the housing available. We believe we can provide the physical facilities, as we have the opportunity to purchase a property with 10 acres of land and 6,000 square foot home, securing a home for ours as well as future generations. Our plan is to be proactive rather than reactive to this project. Our first step is to take this opportunity to acquire, preserve and ensure our developmentally disabled community and future generations will be able to live in a place they can call "home".
We envision a society where individuals with intellectual and develpmental disabilites have full access to resources and services allowing them to live their lives to the fullest. The statistics are staggering, 80% of american special needs young adults are unalbe to live outside their family's home after leaving the school system. 90% of them will never be able to work a day job. The American system currently has no place for them to go. Together we can change this national crisis, one place at a time!!!
