The Village: An Inclusive Housing Model for the Nation

Sophie Singer is a 20-year-old social butterfly with a passion for baking and knitting. Every month, along with other kids and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), she hangs out with neurotypical peers in a “connecting with friends” social group that meets near her home in the Pacific Palisades. She has an entire other group of friends from Ramah sleep-away camp. Her popularity is no surprise to her parents, Jeff, a real estate investor, and Kellie, a stay-at-home mom. They describe her as “funny and fun with a great attitude.”
