Founded by concerned relatives and friends of young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the organization works to address the ongoing residential and community living needs of Cape Codders with developmental disabilities, and to confront the critical shortage of affordable housing on Cape Cod.
Established as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit in 2014, FORWARD’s first project was to build FORWARD at the Rock, two group homes, each serving four adults with profound disabilities. Staffed around-the-clock by Cape Abilities, these state-of-the-art, barrier-free homes were built on-time and on-budget, and have been fully occupied since opening in early fall, 2020.
But we’re not done yet! Now we need individuals, businesses and foundations to step-up and support our next project, FORWARD at the Rock PHASE II. This new construction will include eight one-bedroom apartments for independent living to accommodate developmentally disabled adults who still need supportive services, health and safety supervision and access to 24-hour emergency response, but do not require a congregate setting with around-the-clock staffing.
