The Richard de Lone Special Housing Project was formed for charitable purposes with the express mission, as stated in the Articles of Incorporation, to educate the public about Prader-Willi syndrome, to provide support services to people who have Prader-Willi syndrome, and to build and maintain homes that serve people who have Prader-Willi syndrome and other individuals with developmental disabilities who have similar residential management needs.

Our specific goal is to create a state-of-the-art residential community in the San Francisco Bay Area for children and adults with Prader-Willi syndrome, who have been dealt such a difficult hand, and who deserve all the goodness they can get.

“…creating a slice of heaven on earth.”
