Get to Know Main Street

Main Street’s mission is to create dynamic opportunities through affordable, inclusive housing and community engagement so people of all abilities can live their best lives.

The Main Street Approach

Main Street has a unique philosophy of inclusion that we call “Bring Your Own Independence” or BYOI. Residents and members are encouraged to bring with them whatever and whomever they need to help them fully access and enjoy the benefits of Main Street living and programming.
