An organization is working to give those with developmental disabilities proper housing.

Home of My Own of WNY was created by a group of local mothers aiming to provide housing for those who are independent.

The non-profit launched with a fundraiser Wednesday night.

The group says they'd like to develop a community complete with stores and access to public transportation.

”I think the first thing is to recognize that we don't really have anything like that for our independent kids in Western New York,” said Deb Flynn, the organization’s founding director. “You're driven by the fact that we all want the same thing —we all want our kids to prosper in life and this is no different."

Flynn said they hope to find a location and break ground within the next two years.
