Spectrum Courtyard Apartments (previously called 29 Palms II) is a multi-family demolition/new construction project consisting of 25 one-and two-bedroom apartment units. Spectrum Courtyard will provide multi-generational supportive housing for families and young adults with developmental disabilities, specifically Autism. The project is located at 21st Avenue and Missouri Avenue and is anticipated to be complete by early 2021.
FSL is partnered with First Place Transition Academy, an accomplished service provider working with young adults on the Autism spectrum and will provide a program to enhance the quality of life of both the seniors and the young adults who desire to reside at the community.
“Spectrum Courtyard is a sister project to FSL’s property, 29 Palms, where a similar collaboration exists with First Place to serve seniors and young adults with Autism,” said Steve Hastings, director of real estate, FSL. “Based on the success of 29 Palms, FSL and First Place decided to pursue Spectrum Courtyard to broaden the number of community members we serve.”
The completed project will provide accessible facilities and field-validated supportive services designed to sustain the independence of senior and adult residents and promote social integration and enrichment.
The First Place Transition Program is an established two-year program with the primary goal of maximizing independence for all clients. Their focus is on measurable outcomes such as functional life skills, employment, post-secondary education, leisure, and social interactions.
FSL, the on-site senior residents, and First Place staff will work in tandem to launch the First Place Transition Plan program as a pilot for this model of care in Maricopa County. Special efforts will be made to integrate the strengths and daily needs of all residents to enhance the lives of both seniors and First Place clients.
