Supportive Housing

Favarh Supportive Housing

Favarh – the Arc of the Farmington Valley and Regan Development collaborated on two innovative supportive housing complexes that give tenants with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) increased independence and autonomy in an integrated and safe environment.  The first of the complexes is named Bear Woods Apartments, located in Canton at 300-350 Commerce Drive and the second is Lavender Field Apartments in Bloomfield at 458 and 470 Cottage Grove Road. The innovative nature of these projects includes the incorporation of ADA+ features along with a cutting-edge smart-home management system to help tenants with IDD safely thrive in a fully integrated community setting. A prerequisite for all tenants in both complexes is that they meet state income limitations. The two complexes combined create affordable rentals for 38 people with IDD and 115 others.
