Shady Acres Independent Living for the Mentally Challenged Adults, Inc.

Shady Acres is an independent living apartment complex for mentally challenged adults. Our adult residents maintain their independence while living in a safe and supervised environment. Shady Acres was started by family members of mentally challenged adults who were concerned about their future and what would happen to them when family was no longer able to care for their needs.

Our Mission at SAIL...Some of our residents
