In 2002, nineteen (19) developmentally disabled adults, the majority in their 50's, moved into the newly constructed, single level, wooden apartment complex in Marysville, WA. Three units provide double occupancy with separate bedrooms for each tenant. The remaining units were studio apartments providing a living/sleeping area, kitchen, and bathroom. All units met requirements specific to handicapped persons.
On the premises are a community/recreational building including a kitchen available for use in group social events and celebrations. The building also houses a well-equipped laundry room for client use and office space.
A large gazebo, centrally located, offers a quiet outdoor area with barbecue equipment available for individual or group activities.
A small house for the employed site manager and ample parking for staff and visitors completes the well-designed, attractive, secure residential complex. Units are in high demand. A waiting list of appropriate clients is maintained.
Occupants maintain rental leases with HUD through the on-site manager. Tenants residing at Marysville Quilceda Meadows receive residential care provider funds through several state programs. Quilceda Community Services provide 24-hour care to several clients. Other tenants reside with part-time assistance or independently.
