Everyone deserves to feel included and have the opportunity to thrive.
Front Porch Cohousing by NDL is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that creates safe and sustainable housing opportunities for all, including people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), where everyone is valued, and their lives are enriched through inclusion and lifelong advocacy.
About Our Vision
Front Porch Cohousing by NDL has the vision to ensure that housing and community options are as bountiful for adults living with neurodiversity as they are for everyone else. Since 2019, we have been working tirelessly to provide coliving and cohousing options for people with IDDs and their families and others who wish to live in a neuro-inclusive environment.
Founded by the parents of autistic children and adults, FPC aspires to make a difference within local communities and worldwide. Their Front Porch Cohousing project is aimed to provide the best-in-class, authentic and vibrant spaces that are not just houses but homes for adults experiencing neurological disorders. Learn more about our future housing plans.
FPC is currently in the process of raising funds for its first projects, which will be located in Southeastern Pennsylvania, in Bucks County, and the Lehigh Valley.
Cohousing is a relatively new and innovative concept that generates a sense of community and encourages neighborliness by providing a safe, clean, and sustainable environment for everyone. Living in a cohousing community has many benefits. For example:
It’s environmentally friendly because it reduces the need to commute or use cars since neighbors can walk to local businesses and enjoy community events together.
It also provides accessibility to onsite medical care and other health-related services.
The sense of belonging within a cohousing community fosters friendships and encourages people to reach out whenever they need help with home maintenance or other basic needs.
Cohousing communities are also great for families who want to live in safe neighborhoods where their children can play outside without being too far from home.
