Dr. Caudy researched supportive housing communities and learned about a limited number that operate in cities around the nation. Not wanting to relocate from North Texas, Drs. Caudy and Heighten put the wheels in motion to develop programming and services, as well as design an entire residential community tailored specifically to autistic and neurodiverse adults. In 2015, the couple teamed with other area families affected by autism and founded 29 Acres, a nonprofit organization whose support services largely cover clients in Collin and Denton counties. Dedicated to providing services and safe housing for autistic adults ages 18 and older, the first phase of this sizeable residential development located in the town of Cross Roads is scheduled to welcome 32 full-time residents next summer.
