How It Works

Our Stomping Ground works closely with our Affordable Housing Partners to help fill set aside units within the apartment complex for persons with Developmental Disabilities (DD). Apartment buildings are close to vital services, such as transportation, grocery stores, retail shops and medical services. As units become available, OSG works with the VA DBHDS (Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services as well as local CSB (Community Service Board) to help identify Friends of Our Stomping Ground most in need who are ready to move to independent living. Once these individuals have been appropriately identified, we assist with their transition to the community and support them through integrative programming.
