Union Village offers housing for Alabamians who are deaf, blind, or deaf-blind
Featured Quote: “We (Presbyterian Home for Children) saw ourselves in a situation of being able to solve a big problem. And that is housing with full wraparound program supports for the blind and deaf and deaf-blind by partnering again with our neighbors, our friends – AIDB. I’m the most excited because together we’re able to do something that we could not do separately.”Doug Marshall, president of the Presbyterian Home for Children
