There's a lot of things in life that are complicated. Answering this question isn't one of them. Texas is 49th in the nation for providing services to people with cognitive impairments. Forty-ninth. As in one step above last place (sorry, Mississippi). We find this completely unacceptable and we're here to do our part. To say that adequate care is hard to come by, is a dramatic understatement.
Getting older is a fact of life. It's going to happen to every single one of us, God willing. There will come a day when the parents of a child with disabilities, will no longer be able to care for them. Even if there is an involved sibling, chances are, they lack the time and skills to navigate the extremely complicated system of obtaining services. Beyond that, many people with minor cognitive impairments fall into the "in-betweener" category where they don't even qualify for much, if any, assistance in maintaining their daily needs. Furthermore, what happens should said sibling become unable, for whatever reason, to care for their loved one? Then what?
Southwind Fields. Our founders know this situation on a personal level. Long-term safety and stability for a loved one with a disability is real life. An estimated 9-12% of the homeless population has a cognitive impairment. Our loved ones are not going to be part of that statistic. Not only will they have a home of their own and be surrounded by love, but they will be KNOWN. They will be SECURE. They will be FREE. They will be FULFILLED.
