Welcome to Banyan Odyssey

OUR VISION

The Banyan Odyssey, Inc. exists to create a vibrant community in which the *handicapable can live, work and thrive.

OUR MISSION

The Banyan Odyssey will provide a safe living environment for developmentally/intellectually handicapable adults over the age of 22.  The corporation identifies work opportunities on/near the premises; offers on-going education, creative outlets and social activities for residents and guests; and encourages participation in service programs to enrich the surrounding community.

* Handicapable is an emerging term in the special needs world; here we are referring to “high functioning disabled adults” over the age of 22 (residential housing will accommodate DD/IND disabilities in first phase)

The Banyan Odyssey is represented by the circled area. The Residential Hall and Programs (job-training, ongoing education, creative outlets and social activities) are partially funded by the Hotel, a Social Enterprise which employs the Handicapable.
