Sunflower Hill at Irby Ranch is a residential community providing affordable, independent housing for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a welcoming and supportive community.
Completed in September 2020, Sunflower Hill at Irby Ranch was co-developed with Satellite Affordable Housing Associated (SAHA). Sunflower Hill offers a wide range of community building and life-enhancing programs and activities, while SAHA provides property management services, service coordination (such as referrals and assessment of resident service needs), to ensure that residents receive the direct supports they need to live independently and to thrive.
Working together to ensure its residents receive supportive services, Sunflower Hill, SAHA, and the Housing Consortium of the East Bay (HCEB) collaborate extensively with Regional Center of the East Bay (RCEB), which is one of 21 statewide Regional Centers funded by the California Department of Developmental Services to provide intake, assessment, and case management services to persons with developmental disabilities. Sunflower Hill at Irby Ranch is the first independent, affordable residential community for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Tri-Valley, California.
