Osprey Village is a local grassroots effort to develop a new paradigm for providing housing and support services for local adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by following the ages-old model of "neighbor helping neighbor.

  2. Integration into the Community on an ongoing daily basis, including meaningful work, recreational and social opportunities.
  3. Independent Living that grows and maximizes their skills and potential in a supportive setting.
Osprey Village has acquired 25 acres of land on Highway 170 across from Oldfield in Okatie and over the next two years infrastructure will be complete and housing units will be under construction. For more information please visit www.ospreyvillage.org.
