In the year 2020 in the framework of the project "Creation of Housing / Supported Living Programs" which focuses on the creation of new supported housing where people with disabilities can enjoy a safe and quality living, two new houses “Agapi” and “Athena” were provided for people with autism in Limassol. At the moment house “Athena” is accommodated by two brothers, and house “Agapi” by two young friends with autism.
In conversation with Exclusive Capital the director of the supported living house “Agapi” mentioned that an appropriate housing environment is a crucial part of the wellbeing of the people on the autism spectrum. The goal is to give the young adults a chance to have the ability to live independently, be fully integrated into society, and also to assure their parents and family members that their children will be in a supportive and safe environment when they are no longer around.
Unfortunately, the above-mentioned project does not cover all the expenses related to the purchase of housing equipment, constructional and technical adaption, and adjustments needed accordingly to the specific needs of people with autism. Therefore, there is additional financial support necessary in order to make the living arrangements suitable.
Exclusive Capital’s team is happy to provide one of the required everyday items for the house “Agapi” - a TV, as visual stimulation can be a source of comfort and joy for autistic people, at the same time using technology can help them build knowledge and skills that can be used in everyday life.
