Two Sparrows Village announced a partnership with Christian City, Inc. to create an inclusive neuro-diverse housing option for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and autism. A Christian City cottage originally built in 1981 for the children’s residential program will be renovated and repurposed to create four independent-living apartments for Two Sparrows Village residents to live on the 500-acre Christian City campus in south metro Atlanta. The partnership will also include an adult day service program for adults with I/DD and autism. Opportunities for recreational programming, volunteer activities and employment will be provided by Christian City. The John and Polly Sparks Foundation has provided funding for the cottage renovation.
Two Sparrows Village provides a supportive living environment for adults with I/DD within an inclusive community that promotes greater independence and an exceptional quality of life for adults with lifelong challenges. In addition to an integrated residential program, it intends to provide continuing education with focus on functional reading, math, writing and life skills, vocational training to maximize economic independence for its consumers.
Non-profit Christian City provides residential services for people with I/DD through facilities located on its 500-acre campus. With its annual budget of $10.2 million, it serves more than 1,000 residents annually in the metro Atlanta area in Georgia.
