The Faison Residence


To provide lifelong support for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, The Faison Center has developed a unique, semi-independent living community for adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.


The Faison Residence, one of the country’s first compassionate communities for adults, allows individuals to transition from home based services to a more independent lifestyle in adulthood. This atmosphere helps residents develop daily life skills and additionally provides health and recreation programs, and volunteer programs.


The Residence features 45 apartments, as well as a community room and recreational facilities for social activities. Approximately a third of the apartments are set aside for adult tenants with autism and other developmental disabilities who are generally independent but need occasional assistance and supervision. The remaining apartments are rented to the public, making it a truly integrated community with neighbors looking out for neighbors. The apartments also feature assistive and security technology – all embedded into the fabric of this amazing residential community. The Faison Residence allows individuals to live as independently as possible with supportive in-home services.
