Community for Adults with Disabilities Not Without Controversy

Autism Awareness News

September 9, 2016- "Community for Adults with Disabilities Not Without Controversy"- Vanguard Landing, a new housing project for people with intellectual disabilities in Virginia Beach area, plans to break ground in the next six months.  Concerns arose about the model of Vanguard Landing being out-dated.

The important piece is that individuals with disabilities have another option.
