Fraser Community Living Programs
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.
We currently have an opening at Goldenrod:
Goldenrod is a split-level home located in Plymouth near Eagle Lake Regional Park. The individuals living there are between the ages of 52-63. When COVID restrictions do not prevent it, some of the residents attend a day program and others work in the community during the week. The individuals at Goldenrod are very social and enjoy activities such as puzzles, listening to music, basketball, going for walks, and going out to eat. The home is staffed 2:4 and offers awake overnight staffing.
Fraser Supportive Living offers person-centered services to adults living in their own apartments. Our team specializes in supporting people who have a developmental disability or intellectual disability diagnosis. Supportive Living services include a combination of 24-hour Emergency Assistance and Individualized Home Supports with Training. Services are based on the unique strengthens and needs of each person, with Fraser staff working to help them live as independently as possible. The services Fraser offers to support these individuals can be covered by either a DD or CADI waiver (or private pay at the same rate).
Fraser has availability to provide services to an individual living in their own 2-bedroom apartment, with a current male roommate, at Parkside South. Parkside South is in Apple Valley and is located near a bus line and several shops. Individuals pay their own market-rate rent, utilities and living expenses for their apartment. County waiver funding is used to pay for staffing and services provided.
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.
