Independence Village


Non-Profit Organization


The Independence Village is purposefully self-descriptive. We are fortunate to live in a place and time that offers residential alternatives for the mentally and or physically challenged. We are very proud of the Village’s physical space and the service-first staff who provide a “home” environment for our residents. Our continuing challenge: "Is there any other residential model that could make the lives of mentally and or physically challenged individuals even more enjoyable and fulfilling?” Our privately funded non-profit residence cares for 24 residents ranging in age from 19 years and up. Our residents are individuals with Down Syndrome, developmental disabilities, or brain injury who need minimal assistance in their daily living. Some of our residents are employed either part-time or full-time.

Although each individual has the opportunity and is encouraged to participate in the community in many ways, the place they call "home" is the Independence Village. The Village includes large suites with living rooms, spacious closets and built in chests of drawers, bathrooms designed for the physically challenged, as well as community areas including a large game room and entertainment area. For over 30 years Independence Village staff members have provided a loving and caring home where a family atmosphere is encouraged and fostered.

You are invited to visit us and let us show you the comfort and hospitality at The Village. Please call us to make an appointment. 409-935-4335
