For many families and young adults with autism, the idea of living independently might feel intimidating. However, our resources at our second residence, Ada, makes the transition easier.
Ada is within walking distance to our original residential project, Project 1212, and there are continuous opportunities to interact with all UAS residents. The housing complex is situated in a pedestrian-friendly, neighborhood on the near West Side of Chicago with immediate access to public transportation. Previously known as “Little Italy,” this neighborhood is within one mile of Rush University Medical Center and walking distance to downtown Chicago.
This modern, three-bedroom townhouse can accommodate up to three residents. Ada residents receive support from life-skills instructors as needed to maximize independence and city access.
