Indepedent Housing (1400 × 423 px)

Providing adults
with Autism an innovative independent housing model, the highest quality of life, maximum safety, and dignity.

A real solution for independent living in the community and for the community.

St. Teresa is the first in what we hope will be several facilities that provide housing for the underserved and marginalized of our communities, including those with autism. As people begin to age out, many support and educational services become unavailable and puts a major strain on both them and their families. Because of this need, we created independent housing where adults of any age live independently and learn new skills— gaining greater access to their community, building their network and connections, fostering their pride and confidence, and giving their aging parents peace of mind.

Housed in a former convent, apartments are thoughtfully designed and equipped with assistive technology. The close-knit tenants enjoy group activities in the building common areas and in the greater community that bring them together to create lifelong friendships. In keeping with our ArchCare mission, we care about each tenant as a whole person, always treating them with dignity and respect. 

St. Teresa’s independent living offers the following:

One year lease
Affordable housing
Newly renovated building
Studio apartments that include a kitchen and a large full bath

Beautiful common areas
Free laundry
Free parking
Handicap Accessible


ArchCare independent housing uses an open application process and a housing lottery. All are welcome to apply!  Some apartments are set aside for people with autism who have the potential to live independently with supports and modifications
