Our Model: MURB

The Cribwolf Foundation proposes a community-central, multi-unit residential building (MURB) with mixed tenancy/residents for adults over the age of 21 with intellectual & developmental disability. This project entails the construction of a new concept to allow multiple floors of apartment-style permanent and respite residential units, with ground floor opportunities for administration, medical care, security, and recreation. Our housing model of choice will ensure a safe, secure, and inclusive environment in which all residents may live and receive their daily supportive care, as applicable.

What will the MURB look like?

Cribwolf Foundation intends to locate and procure financing for the purpose of acquiring property with proper zoning, which will allow the foundation to proceed with the construction plans for a multi-unit residential facility that provides specialized supportive care to meet the unique requirements abilities of each individual tenant with intellectual & developmental disabilities. 

Each location will be staffed with a complement of well-trained support staff. The needs of an individual with intellectual & developmental disability vary from supervised independent living to 24-hour-a-day care.

Our first location will consider naming our multi-unit residence in honour of the major contributor to our project. A Wall of Honour will be erected in our lobby exhibiting the names of all the families of individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities supporting Cribwolf Foundation.

Cribwolf Foundation continues to source potential land with great care to position the MURB close to transportation routes and services to allow capable residents to have access to community resources and employment.

Cribwolf Foundation will rely on various community agencies for their support services as it relates to the individual needs of each resident. The realization of our first location will also depend on the collaboration and support from various levels of Federal, Provincial, Regional and Municipal government agencies.
