Our services are here to help your organization establish inclusive housing options right in your own backyard. Paradigm’s development team has years of experience of identifying and developing residential housing properties in the Midwest. We’re continually partnering with Disability Service Providers (DSP’s) to help them solve the affordable housing crisis for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/D). The consulting services we provide, begin with the simple step of getting to know your organization and better understand your participants’ housing needs. It all begins with our initial Pre-Planning meetings – all the way through the move-in day.

Phase 1

Getting To Know You

We first want to meet you and get to know your organization through our housing analysis, family surveys and partnership structure. This helps us understand your mission, operations, and the needs of the individuals / families you serve daily.

Your DSP Organization’s – Needs and Wants

Each DSP organization has its area of expertise and provides outstanding services for its ID/D participants and families. Paradigm’s expertise is in real estate planning, design / development, capitalization & construction of affordable housing.

Housing Needs / Market Research / Family Surveys

Paradigm’s Pre-Development work lays the groundwork for a successful partnership with your DSP organization and helping to properly access the housing options in your geographic area and locations that are desirable for an inclusive living community.

Our initial 90-day Pre=Development Agreement allows us to properly complete the required due diligence for the surrounding communities, working with local municipalities / counties, and understanding the needs of the families and ID/D individuals you work with.
