Independent Living 

Meet Michele. Michele lives on her own in a home purchased with DODD Community Capital Assistance Program funds. These funds allow the County Boards to buy, build, and renovate homes to create independent living options for people with developmental disabilities.


Rent for these homes is set at a fixed rate and maintenance is provided by the County Board.


Michele enjoys the independence of living on her own and making her own decisions. She loves to decorate her home, especially for the holidays and seasons.


When not at home Michele can be found at one of her two jobs. She works at Nothing But Chocolate where she helps pack, label and seal chocolates, folds boxes, and handles janitorial duties. Michele also works at the Deep Cut, doing prep work, including weighing fried food, filling ranch cups, and setting up the cleaning station.
