The Home of Your Own (HOYO) project in 2009 provided five individuals with developmental disabilities in the Baton Rouge area with the information and tools necessary to pursue home ownership. The Arc of Louisiana also presented the HOYO Project to six local Arcs statewide to train them on how to develop a HOYO project in their areas.
Edward Helm, participant of the
Home of Your Own project in
Baton Rouge, purchased his own home
in December 2010.
