"Homeward Bound" is a Fund Raising series that has been established to help raise funding and awareness for the housing need for adults with developmental disabilities.
(On this page, Learn more about our 2019 Golf Ball Charity Run (See post below), Homeward Bound Sponsor & Registration Info...and more)
To be a part of the solution, Special Blessings has begun a new program called, "Homeward Bound".
“Homeward Bound” will be assisting adults with developmental disabilities in obtaining permanent housing.
"Homeward Bound" is a FUNdraising program where our community can be a part of assisting us in meeting the housing need.

On Wednesday, April 8th, 2009, our very own Founder of Special Blessings, Roxanne Sinsapaugh and her son, Shaun, appeared on the 6:00 Evening News.
WTVD, ABC 11 News, reporter Shae Crisson, did a story on the New Director of Mental Health, Mr. Luckey Welsh. The story centered on Abuse and Neglect in state run facilities and the need for positive change in our system.
In 2001, Roxanne’s son, Shaun, fell victim to neglect at a state run facility. Since that time, she has been advocating for change so that others may receive better care and working on building homes for a better tomorrow. This is their story...

It has now been demonstrated that with the proper support, many people with developmental disabilities can live independently if they so wish. But, public policy is lagging in serving people's needs for adequate housing.In general, there is a grave shortage of affordable housing in the US. People with developmental disabilities who receive SSI are among the poorest in the nation. They are the lowest income group in North Carolina with the most unmet need for housing assistance. Less than 6% of rental units in NC are considered affordable. People with developmental disabilities must spend 97% of their entire monthly income on rent for a modest one bedroom apartment at HUD's Fair Market rent rate.
