Originally crafted in 2008, the Vision and Mission has grown and evolved over time. In 2010 it was redefined to better reflect current thinking.


Creative Living Community of Connecticut envisions adults in Connecticut with and without developmental disabilities as valued and contributing members of our society, exemplified in a model community to be created in Eastern Connecticut where all members experience a sense of belonging, share resources and enjoy a happy life.


CLCC seeks to create a shared, inclusive living experience for individuals with and without developmental disabilities in a farm community, by focusing upon the gifts of all in mutually rewarding relationships.

The farm community is the key element of the vision. People with and without a disability will interact by living together, working together and socializing together. When complete, there will be a mixed community of approximately sixty people. About twenty of the community residents would be diagnosed with a developmental disability.
