A Sustainable Special Needs Community
Sunflower Hill is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to create a sustainable residential community for individuals with special needs – similar to senior living. Our community would not only support life-long living opportunities, but social, vocational, educational and recreational programs to ensure a full and productive life.
In November 2015, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a updated statistic: one in 45 boys born in California are now being diagnosed with Autism. This is a increase from one in 150 in 1992 and essentially means that approximately two percent of all children in the United States ages 3-17 have some form of Autism. As these children become adults, there is and will continue to be a tremendous need for housing and support services.
Sunflower Hill seeks to enhance the options available to those with special needs by creating a diverse community of choice that supports a sustainable, productive and happy quality of life.
