The goal is to provide facilities where special needs individuals who can no longer live with their families can live in a Christian environment that is similar to that of their parental home. The aim is to have a place that will be close enough for regular family visits and attendance at a church that nurtures the special needs individuals in the faith of the parental home and church.
