About the Program
Friendship House Fayetteville is an intentional living community that provides affordable, integrated housing for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (friend residents), with a unique focus on college students and young professionals in the healthcare, allied health, and human service fields.
Friendship House Fayetteville works alongside young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families to provide intentional, transitional living. At its core, this faith-based community is rooted in table fellowship expressed through a daily rhythm of eating, praying and celebrating together.
Friendship House has a transformative effect on students and friends alike. As a gateway to independent living, friend residents are supported by rehabilitation staff to achieve sustainable employment while developing independent living skills. To gain a stronger sense of awareness and education, college students and young professionals serve as mentors and develop a stronger empathy in community living and their professional endeavors.
