Nearly 80% of people with disabilities cannot find housing when they are ready to leave home. There are few housing options for adults with special needs, and long waiting lists for those that exist.
The Special Place Foundation assists individuals with developmental disabilities to live with purpose, in a sustainable, lifelong urban-farm community.
Building our community, one seed at a time.
Special Place Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, run entirely by volunteers. Your donations directly help individuals with disabilities. Our Social Club matches volunteer buddies with our participants. These friendly companions help participants with disabilities develop the social skills needed to form friendshps and develop a cohesive community.
We are looking for peer buddies for our group activities. Earn community service credit while having fun with our friendly participants.
Our vocational training program includes a Garden Club, teaching gardening skills and work behaviors. The Garden Club meets in our organic garden on the San Francisco peninsula.
