Inclusive Housing Models

Over the years, the vision of OASIS Communities of West Michigan has grown. We have been challenged to discover housing alternatives that will provide our young adults a safe place to live with greater independence, social connectivity, and lead purpose-filled enjoyable lives.

To that end, we have researched several communities that have developed viable alternative models addressing all the quality of life issues we have identified.
