For many of us, living independently is something we take for granted. But for those living with unique abilities it is not always an option. A new organization in Grand Haven is providing a supportive community for some young adults to move out of mom and dad’s for the first time.
“People with unique abilities or disabilities will be served at Gracious Grounds,” said founder Sandy Baker, “The people who will be residing here are semi-independent. They really carry on fully productive lives. And the idea of Gracious Grounds is not to erase that. We’re not here to erase their lives, we’re here to supplement their lives with other opportunities. But to continue the already productive lives that they’ve already set up.”
Gracious Grounds is funded by community donations. The organization is working to expand to provide more housing opportunities to fit different varieties of special needs.
