Proactive Living Facility , Inc is a Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c) (3) Assisted Living Facility.   The facility will be a licensed, Christian based assisted living facility that will be located in Ronan, Montana, in the heart of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Reservation.  This facility will be either a new building or a comprehensively renovated building, specifically designed and equipped to meet the needs to adults with developmental disabilities in a comfortable, secure location, irrespective of race or health condition.

Proactive Living Facility is a non-profit organization with skilled staffing coming from the area with any and all skills needed to provide above-mentioned needs of our clientele. We firmly believe and are passionate in ensuring that the developmentally disabled population of adults ranging in age from 18 to 45 are not lost in a society that is lacking housing options and services that provide those needs.  Our main focus in this facility will be adults with autism.  Advancing Futures for Adults with Autism (afaa-us.org) shows devastating statistics for this population and the generations to come.


Adult with Autism Services in Demand


 During the past decade, the prevalence of autism has increased to 20 to 70 per 10,000 with the current rate estimated at 1 in every 68 children - 1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls (Centers for Disease Control).  With this increase in prevalence has come an increased demand for effective services for adolescents and adults with autism and for accurate information on what constitutes appropriate evidence-based intervention and practice. Unfortunately, the need continues to far exceed the available resources leaving a generation of people with autism and their families in a programmatic, financial, and personal limbo and society-at-large economically diminished.


New Plans are Needed


"The potential of young adults and adults (14 years of age and older) with autism to become employed and engaged citizens of the U.S. is not so much limited by their disability itself but, rather, by the failures of the system charged with supporting them.    

We need to consolidate and focus our efforts to develop and drive the agenda for lifelong living and learning with autism THIS COMING YEAR. We cannot afford 10 to 15 years to get clarity and take meaningful action on this challenge, like it did with advancing the agenda for early intervention and insurance coverage. This agenda needs to be accelerated into a tidal wave that represents real change in the quality of life for adults with autism.”  - Advancing Futures for Adults with Autism (aafa-us.org)
