Welcome to

Intentional Communities
of Washtenaw

Intentional Communities of Washtenaw (ICW) is a group of parents, families and friends who want to improve the quality of life for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by supporting community living and enhanced social opportunities.

What We Do

As an Intentional Community

ICW’s mission is to promote stable and sustainable quality of life for adults with developmental disabilities, designed to reduce isolation and develop skills to live interdependently in a community setting.

Create unique, high quality communities of choice for clusters of 6-10 individuals

Provide enhanced social opportunities for our resident members to interact with each other and the community

Encourage recreational activities and community interaction across the ICW clusters

200+ Happy Individuals and Families

With the support of many individuals and organizations, ICW moved forward in 2008 to launch this model in Ann Arbor. Today, ICW has over 200 connected individuals and families.
