Integrated Communities


Integrated Communities @ Carousel 51

Carousel 51 is focuses on creating "Integrated Communities". We have an Autistic son, so this is our passion in life and we are actively seeking partners in the Developmentally Disabled and Autism communities in the New York area. We want to partner with agencies, providers, and employers on services, jobs, housing, and community integration topics. We are believers in the "Self Direction" model for the DD community.

How do you implement "Self-Direction in the OPWDD System", in a residential community, and how do you make it great? ArchCare, the Continuing Care Community of the Archdiocese of New York, is converting a beautiful building at Saint Teresa Parish on Staten Island for our Special Needs population. 

I serve on the Committee and keep updates on the project HERE.

 The Threefold/Otto Specht is very interesting, as it has built in “Integration” at the existing community:

Is the Otto Specht/Threefold Community the 'Integrated' Model We Have Been Looking For?

Mike Sweeney is on the Board of Otto Specht, and the focus is building the ”Transitional Life Skills Program”. This is offered to students that have aged out of high school and require a post-secondary program to build the practical, vocational, and social skills needed to successfully navigate their path towards independent living.

The Transitional Life Skills Program is growing, a reflection of obvious demand. Two Otto Specht families have purchased homes on the periphery of the campus for their adult children to share with other adult residents. Other housing models are also being discussed.

We were early investors in Bitcoin and the real estate applications for the Blockchain are very interesting, including this #SharedProsperity in Berkeley, CA. In this Youtube segment, Ragnar Lifthrasir of the International Blockchain Real Estate Association does a nice job of explaining some real estate applications:
