Our resident members 18 years and above will live together as members of a loving and caring family and in an intentional homestead community. Assisted living in which our housing team will provide 24 hour  supervision and personal care services for 3-6 residents in each home. We believe that each person has his or her own unique destiny. We try to build an environment that supports each person’s individual strengths, having diverse religious and cultural backgrounds, ranging in ages from 18 to 99 years.

The intentional community living model enables TSL to address the pre-vocational, residencial, social, emotional, and physical needs of adults with disabilities.  One keystone of this model is an emphasis on opportunities for independence and interdependence for adults with disabilities, which is achieved by work and living situations in which our members make an active and significant contribution to our homestead. Many will thrive on the accountability and relevance of their work, citing their responsibilities in the café, farm stand, the petting zoo, chicken coop or in the garden as one of their favorite parts of life here.

Please contact us if you would would like to be a part of TSL Housing.  Due to the high levels of interest, we recommend Members and their families need to apply to be a part of the waiting list as soon as possible. Doing this will secure your place on the wait list. Please note, we are only accepting applications for Members for Monroe, NC location at this time. If you are outside this area and would like to have TSL come to your community, please let us know.
