Dear Inclusive Design Community,

Plant a Home is a social enterprise based in London ON. Our goal is to create a financially sustainable business model that allows adults with developmental disabilities to own their own homes, without dependence on government funding.

We are inviting you to attend our first co-design session, organized in partnership with the IDRC. We are also asking for your support through inviting potential end users and their families in your networks, to participate in the co-design session.

The topic of this session is “empowering independent living in the neighbourhood”. We will explore different aspects of a neighbourhood and how they can be changed to support a more inclusive community. The emerging ideas will be incorporated into a location selection criteria for Plant a Home to decide where to build. See the event page for more information.

Time: September 15th, 1:00-5:00pm
Location: 49 McCaul Street, Toronto (OCAD University)
RSVP Here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/plant-a-home-co-design-session-tickets-49619271577

Info about Plant a Home:

Plant a Home was founded by 6 students from the Ivey Business School, in response to the housing crisis facing adults with developmental disabilities in Ontario. We believe we can use entrepreneurship to solve problems in our society. We are currently in our design and pilot phase, drafting housing models and testing the financial viability.

To learn more about Plant a Home, see here to watch our presentation at the IDRC Community Meeting: https://idrc.cachefly.net/wiki.fluidproject.org/videos/IDRC_CommunityWorkshop_PlantAHome_2018-08-29.mp4

We would love for you to join us on our mission by attending our co-design session and/or sharing this event with your network. 

Thank you for your time and support.
