Apartment style community will be the first of its kind in Central Florida
ORLANDO, Fla., January, 2018— Central Florida’s newest innovative residential community for independent adults with developmental disabilities welcomed its first residents in December 2017. The community is located off of Woodbury Road, at 12799 Robin Cherney Way, named in memory of an individual served at Quest Training Center in Orlando.
Quest Village contains 48 units, a community center, basketball court and gazebo. Each single-story building contains a modern apartment design with laminate wood-tone floors throughout, one bedroom, one bathroom, a dine-in kitchen, a living room, a washer and dryer, a covered porch, extra storage space and Wi-Fi capabilities.
“Quest Village is a transformational project for the developmentally disabled community and for the community at large,” said John R. Gill, President and CEO, Quest, Inc. “For the first time in Central Florida, individuals served by Quest Village are able to experience life in a fashion so many of us take for granted.”
On- and off-site support services are offered, through Quest, Inc., a nonprofit that serves individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Orlando and Tampa and has been in the community for more than 50 years. Services are tailored to meet individual needs and range from $200 to $2,400 a month, on top of the sliding-scale rent of $379 to $597 a month.
“Quest Village fills a gap for people with developmental disabilities who are ready to live independently,“ said Brooke Eakins, Chief Operating Officer, Quest, Inc. “The community allows residents to thrive with unparalleled access to employment, entertainment, education, and other community activities while gaining friendships and living in a positive environment with neighbors who share similar interests.”
Quest Village is owned by Quest Village GP, LLC., a partnership composed of Alden Torch Financial and Quest, Inc. Quest Village was developed through an alliance composed of Quest Village Developer, LLC. and The Vestcor Companies of Jacksonville, Florida.
Significant start-up support for the development of this project was provided by Florida Housing Finance Corp., Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, Robin’s Nest and The Cherney Family Foundation, and Stearns Weaver Miller.
