The Hope Cottages: Birmingham non-profit that serves mentally disabled patients gets three new beautiful homes

Glenwood, Inc., a non-profit serving people with autism and other mental health concerns, just got three new “Hope Cottages” on its 363-acre Birmingham campus to house 16 residents who have autism.

The details:

The project was completed thanks to Capstone Collegiate Communities, which donated its construction services and asked its vendors to also donate services and products such as concrete and furniture to complete the homes.

Though not yet occupied, the homes will be managed by Glenwood staff and fully functional for the residents with individual bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchens and dining rooms, and common living areas overlooking a beautiful lake on the property.

“Everybody that walks through says, ‘Wow, I would live here,’” Linda Baker, Glenwood’s Chief Development Officer, told Yellowhammer News. “People with disabilities deserve lovely homes, and that’s what they’re excited about.”

Baker was not able to specify when residents will be able to move in but anticipates it will be soon, after the homes receive proper certification.
