At Trailhead Community (formerly known as Stepping Stone Communities), our mission is creating and designing an extraordinary opportunity for people to come together in an integrated and intentional apartment community.
Our first project is an 84 unit apartment complex where 50% of the units are allocated for adults with developmental disabilities, 25% for working professionals/millennials and 25% for active seniors. The building will include state-of-the-art technology and “Universal Design” features to promote independence and safety for all residents. A cooperative management model will integrate all three tenant groups together to make decisions about how their community will operate!
This concept was inspired by the success of Stepping Stone Support Center, a sister company established in 2013. The support center provides prevocational and life skills training, job placement, job coaching services, social events and community connections. Many of the participants who have received services through the support center will be eligible for independent living at Trailhead Community due to their success in the program.
