Celebrate, Learn and Share with us the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
"One of the most important lessons the ADA taught me that had little to do with ramps or elevators is that the American people have a deep if sometimes unconscious desire to do good things and to celebrate our unifying values. In spite of some of the contentious litigation it caused, the ADA gave Americans an excuse for such celebration."
Located in the beautiful Lowcountry of South Carolina, the Village will provide a “walkable” neighborhood close to shopping, health care, entertainment, and employment opportunities. The variety of planned housing options will include individual homes, cottages and apartments in true Southern architectural style.
It is important for everyone in the family to have time to relax and rejuvenate so we can all be our best.
This can be challenging in a family where one or more members live with a developmental disability. OVI respite services provide families with the opportunity to take a beneficial break.
Osprey Village is a client-centered service model and future inclusive neighborhood designed to empower adults with developmental disabilities through the creation of new and broader resources. Residents of the Osprey Village development will have an array of safe and attractive lifestyle housing options as well as access to life skills training, job coaching and placement, recreation, and a variety of social opportunities.
At our current pace of progress, it is possible we will be able to start the first residential services for one to two dozen adults in about two years. We are currently working with architects, engineers, and land developers in pursuit of this goal. We are also developing a capital campaign to raise the first million toward a $14 million project. We encourage bold community leaders with vision to invest in this life-changing and community-transforming mission.
While the overriding purpose of our neighborhood will be to accommodate adults with developmental disabilities, anyone may apply to live there and applications will be evaluated much as they would be in any other rental community. Our current projections estimate the average rent for Osprey Village housing will be about $500 per month. Waivers, private pay, and possible scholarship-type awards are among the payment options for housing and services at Osprey Village.
Osprey Village will remain dedicated to creating empowering resources to make it possible for many deserving adults to build lives of freedom and happiness.

When Willaim Dennington thinks about the future, he can almost taste the Dutch soup. "I love cooking, and Dutch soup is my specialty; it has potatoes, hamburger meat ... of it's great," the 24-year-old said. Of course, creating his signature soup will require a kitchen. And that kitchen will require a house. And Dennington is counting the days ...
