The Village of Merici: a neighborhood for adults with developmental disabilities
Posted in General

Recently, Tobin McClamroch and I were elected to the board of directors of a growing organization that has an inspirational vision for the future of the Indianapolis community. The Village of Merici, a neighborhood in the process of being designed, recognizes the importance of supporting and sustaining purpose-filled lives for adults with developmental disabilities. Founded by a team of parents concerned with the future adult lives of their children, The Village of Merici will strive to provide a safe, joyful and accessible neighborhood for its residents.

Serving on the board of directors will allow us the opportunity to support the growth and development of this organization and help execute their mission. The Village of Merici serves to create independence by sustaining a neighborhood village which offers support and options in all areas of living. It aims to provide choices in residential living, occupational training and job placement opportunities, and social activities to help foster an independent lifestyle. A faith-based organization, The Village of Merici focuses on a strong sense of community and a framework to sustain and improve mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health of the individuals it serves.

The Village of Merici has recently achieved its goal of acquiring a property for renovation of the Merici Village Apartment Project. The Village will host 16 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom units for adults with developmental disabilities. As board members, we look forward to leading the future development of this project.
