Who We Are
ROAR Florida was founded to provide meaningful lifestyle options and housing for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The ROAR Florida community is the culmination of the dreams of the co-founders and the hundreds of volunteers who have helped along the way. There are currently 140+ residents living independently with the help of their fellow residents, families, friends, caregivers, and supporters. Our community is designed to help develop the skills needed for independent living.
ROAR Florida is similar to a retirement community, offering residents, caregivers, and families various social, recreational, educational, and vocational opportunities. Because this is intended to be a lifelong residential community, we strive to support evolving personal care needs as residents age.
We are kind, caring and empathetic.
We boldly step forward together in spite of the obstacles.
We relentlessly seek to understand each other and create mutual trust.
We always act with honesty, honor and transparency.
We initiate, develop and nourish meaningful connections.
We enable individuals to take control of their own development and create their own destiny.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there a waiting list for residents?
Typically, demand for affordable and accessible apartments is high and the length of time from application to move-in can vary greatly. As with any apartment community, it’s common for there to be some turnover as a resident’s annual leases expire.
