Welcome to Vanguard Landing

The Mission of Vanguard Landing is to offer a safe, intentional, interactive, and inclusive community where persons with intellectual and developmental differences can thrive and achieve their life’s full potential.

We are a Neuro-diverse and individual-centered Intentional Community where the strengths, gifts, and capabilities of ALL of our citizens are embraced, nurtured, and celebrated. We believe that our friends and family members that may need a little support to live as independently as possible, have the right to choose where they live and work.

Vanguard Landing is an exciting new planned and intentional community that is designed around the support needs of those with disabilities and living next to those without disabilities! 

We are proud to bring to life a progressive and forward-thinking option to complement other current choices for individuals with an intellectual or developmental disability and to help facilitate their choices in how they receive those supports.

Vanguard Landing has both cottage-style apartments and one-bedroom, one-story townhomes and there are plans in the works for more residential offerings as well!

Vanguard Landing is a true and diverse community where person with and without disabilities will enjoy a beautiful and well-designed neighborhood!

Vanguard Landing will help to alleviate the severe shortage of employment and residential opportunities for this population. 

Vanguard Landing is a proud member of the Together for Choice and Coalition for Community Choice national advocacy organizations.

In addition to our residences, we will have numerous amenities in our neighborhood and even some business enterprises to support our Mission! 

A TRUE Community – A New Choice!
