Soltane Communities creates a comprehensive, therapeutic and supportive environment for individuals with developmental disabilities, ages 18 to 25. Established in 1988, Soltane Communities is a life-sharing, educational, intentional community for and with young adults with developmental disabilities. Resident volunteers (coworkers) and their families make their home together with individuals in need of special care in a beautiful, lively, rural community setting. Soltane Communities includes both Soltane College, which seeks to build a bridge from adolescence to adulthood for young adults ages 18-25, and Soltane Community Houses, which seek further independence through focus on the individual’s vocational possibilities, interests and potential, providing open-ended, long-term residential living.
