The upcoming Southwind Fields Tiny House Community is Phase 3 of the overall vision for Southwind Fields.

It will provide a residential situation where our Locals (Southwind members) will experience an all-inclusive community of acceptance, growth, independence, and support in a therapeutic and supportive atmosphere.

Each resident will be provided a comfortable, manageably-sized rental home (or a room in The Inn for residents needing more individualized supervision) to call their own. We encourage residents to bring furniture and items to decorate as they please.

Each home will be fitted with A/C and a wet space for a sink and small refrigerator, but shared kitchens will be available also. These will create a sense of community and provide a higher level of safety.

In these moderately supervised spaces, our Locals may enjoy cooking and breaking bread alongside their neighbors and friends. Residents who have passed a simple cooking and food-handling course can prepare their own meals.

The Southwind City Locals program is designed for men and women of a wide variety of abilities who desire to live independently within the community and have the necessary skill set to do so with minor assistance.

City Locals live in our partnered, affordably priced apartment complex located on the Northwest side of San Antonio. Here, they maintain their own lease agreements, while enjoying the fellowship and community of living alongside other Southwind City Locals.

City Locals have the opportunity to attend the Southwind Day Program, should they so desire, where they may participate in community impact team mission work and attend Life Groups and Worship Gatherings.

Other aspects of the City Locals program include:

  • Roommate match (Locals choose their roommate from a pool of potential life-long friends)
  • Community Apartment based living centered around the community strong concept
  • Personal Local Advisor (case management/advocacy/State & Medicaid provider supervision)
  • 24/7 on-call support
  • 24/7 on-call wellness advisor
  • Minimum of twice-weekly check-ins
  • Weekly environmental checks
  • Bi-weekly support from an Occupational Therapy Intern
  • Independent living guidance
  • Bus/transportation training
  • Optional financial management with bi-weekly budget meetings
  • Weekly Local Family group events
  • Bi-Weekly support group meetings
  • Employment search and retention assistance
  • Access to the Southwind Social Club

RMI's Semi-Independent Apartment program gives adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities the ability to live in the community with more freedom and more responsibility. Residents in this program lease their own apartment and pay their own expenses. They may choose to live by themselves or share an apartment with a roommate.

At San Mateo Apartment Homes, Waters at Elm Creek and other apartment communities in San Antonio, RMI residents work, play, shop and worship with others in their neighborhoods. With ongoing support from RMI staff, residents are able to meet the everyday challenges of living independently.

Adults with developmental disabilities can choose to live in a foster home with a family member or other individual as their foster care provider.

RMI contracts with the foster care provider to assist with daily living skills, personal care, transportation, and other activities that allow the client to live as independently as possible in a safe and supportive environment.

To apply to be a Foster Care Provider contact Terri Maurer.
