A common question of parents with a child with Down syndrome or other intellectual disability:
"Who cares for our son or daughter after we're gone?"
The Hacienda can answer this question for ten families, but is also conceived of as a template for others to follow; one that is Replicable, Adaptable and Affordable.
There is a critical shortage of affordable housing options for people with intellectual disabilities. Government supported programs tend to be under-funded, over-regulated and diminishing in availability. Private-pay options are often excellent but too expensive for most families.
The Point Rider Foundation and its leadership stands ready to build the Hacienda and then help others build similar vibrant communities.
We ask for your help. End the waiting for 10 people with disabilities.
Open the door to their new life.
Then we'll start on the next 10. Then another 10. Then . . . we'll keep on going.
Happy to support such a worthy and necessary mission!

I donated in support of this campaign.
We need some great options like the Hacienda to give people with Down syndrome, autism and other disabilities a home of their own
