Whether an existing building or a facility being built from the ground up, every TDC site will be selected and customized to offer state of the art apartments and amenities to ensure a safe, secure, and experience rich living experience for every resident.
When it comes to our facilities, sustainability is our main focus. With the lives of our loved ones at the center of every TDC, we ensure that our facilities are not just housing units but are welcoming homes that are safe, efficient, and lasting. Residents and their families can rest assured that TDC will be there for as long as they wish to live within the community. As Tim Downes states,
Sustainability is our biggest focus! Since this is a major commitment we will ensure that all residents will have the opportunity to reside for however long they like. This takes the vision and commitment from everyone associated with each facility. Teamwork and dedication are our strongest assets. The Autism community has unyielding strength. From parents to siblings, millions of great people will make this innovative approach successful on every level.
In short, every TDC will be more cost effective, more efficient, and more sustainable than any facility that is currently available today to the adult autism population.
What TD Communities is Not:
TDC is a new concept. It has not been done before. For that reason, it is to be expected that we will be put into a box and defined by conventional approaches to housing and treatment of the special needs community. We feel that it is our responsibility to continually clarify what we are and what we are not, “We understand that there are a lot misnomers about what we are trying to accomplish. For that reason, it is important that we define what the TDC is NOT. The TDC’s around the country will NOT be residential living facilities, group homes, or assisted living facilities. Rather, TDC is an innovative approach to addressing the growing need of quality housing and support for adults with autism and related disorders. It is about preserving and honoring the dignity and potential of every individual that needs our support and expertise. “
A Global Vision:
Touchdown Communities will be a global effort based on a replicable model sharing the same model, philosophies, and services within every community in place. The same criteria and core values will be present in every TDC no matter the location. Southern NJ will be the first of the TD Communities.
