The path to well-being and fulfillment may be different for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, but the hopes and dreams to live a meaningful life with a sense of purpose are the same. Finding the right residential home is critical to the success and development of an adult with special needs, and helps ease the worry or burden that parents and family members may feel. Since 1980, TERI has been providing superior residential services. Through enrichment programs, healthy living, sustainability, and a phenomenal home environment that offers safety, security, training, care and love.
TERI has been nationally recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as a renowned residential program. TERI currently owns and operates 12 residential homes throughout Northern San Diego County. Our homes are licensed as Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled, Habilitative (ICF/DD-H), by the California Department of Public Health.
Since this property was built or renovated using funding from HUD's current Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program or legacy Section 202 program, residency is usually restricted to households earning 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less with at least one adult member with a disability. Tenants pay rent based on household income. This rent is usually the highest of the following three amounts: either 30% adjusted monthly income, or 10% unadjusted monthly income, or, if receiving welfare assistance, the housing costs portion of this assistance.
This project has received some funding from a participating jurisdiction (local or state government agency) through the HUD HOME Investments Partnerships Program (HOME). In projects with five or more HOME-assisted units, at least 20% of these units must be occupied by families earning 50% or less of area median income (AMI). All other HOME-assisted units must be occupied by families earning 80% or less of AMI, but in practice most are reserved for families earning 60% or less AMI. Maximum monthly rent is capped with a Low HOME Rent for <50% AMI units and a High HOME Rent for the remaining HOME-assisted units. Contact the property directly for the specific dollar amount of these rent caps.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in a HUD rental assistance program in Oceanside but actual income limits may differ for units at Mar Vista House.
