  • The social enterprise will strengthen the community either as a business or as an additional civic program.
  • Parent-led programs provide higher quality housing services and have been more successful in promoting community integration than agency run programs because parents are more committed to success.

  • Similar to what has happened with 12 communities in New Jersey that have committed to similar programs, the community will enhance is reputation as a civic leader and attractive place to live and work.
