Finding housing can be difficult for individuals with special needs. Maybe they’ve been living at home, but are ready to move out on their own. Or perhaps they have reached adulthood, but still need some support at home. Fraser can help.
Fraser Community Living offers three different living options for teens and adults with special needs: Supervised Living, Supportive Living and Independent Living. These distinct housing options are as unique as the people who live there. Our goal is to provide just enough support to ensure they can live comfortably on their own.
Fraser has 27 Supervised Living homes available to teens and adults with special needs. These homes are located in neighborhoods throughout Hennepin and Anoka counties. The housing choice is for individuals who need more support at home and to participate in their community.
In Supervised Living, Fraser staff is on-site 24 hours a day. They help residents manage their daily needs and encourage them to work toward goals. Staff helps residents with grocery shopping, meal prep and attending events in the community.
Fraser Supportive Living has spaces in four apartment buildings for adults with developmental disabilities who require less support. Individuals should be comfortable spending time alone, know how to react in an emergency and shouldn’t display aggressive behavior. Roommate opportunities are available.
Each Supportive Living apartment building has a coordinator on-site who supervises and trains other staff. Fraser staff provide personal care assistance and help with medication, cooking and budgeting. They also help residents reach personal goals and participate in events in the community.
Fraser has five Independent Living apartment buildings. These apartments are for adults, 18 years and up, with developmental disabilities who can live independently with little support. Independent Living buildings are located in Apple Valley, Bloomington, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Richfield.
Fraser staff mediate tenant issues, help with emergencies, plan activities and assist residents with engaging in the community. Residents pay 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent.
