    As someone who has no experience as a real estate developer, what would you recommend as the first few steps to having the vision of a community become a reality?  Business Plans, Presentation to specific organizations etc?

    We have created this list of suggestions on how to start a project using the tools on the AHN: http://www.autismhousingnetwork.org/education/creating-housing-opportunities/

    Without knowing much about your vision, its hard to share suggestions, but here is where others have found great support:

    • Local SCORE office for business plan development: https://www.score.org/
    • Contacting your state housing and finance authority and asking to be introduced to an affordable housing developer who may have an interest in developing for this population in mind: https://www.ncsha.org/housing-finance-agencies-list/
    • Contacting cohousing professionals who can help your dream become a reality: https://www.cohousing.org/professionals
    • Local faith communities for land, financial and social support
    • Local university department heads: Education, Psychology, Speech Pathology,  OT, Social work, etc.
