Safe & Secure Homes for People Living With a Disability
The Carinbundi Foundation has been established to purchase and manage properties to help those living with a disability to grow and thrive through Supported Independent Living. Because we own the properties, we can offer complete security and peace of mind to residents and their families knowing that they have a long-term home for as long as they want or need.

FILM FUNDRAISER - BEST SUMMER EVER
Thank you to everybody who came along to the Best Summer Ever movie. What an awesome movie and so good to see authentic disability representation on the big screen!
Here is what Hollywood Reporter has to say about “Best Summer Ever”:
Boy meets girl in this high school musical with an emphasis on inclusivity, directed by Michael Parks Randa and Lauren Smitelli.
Irresistibly likable musical Best Summer Ever offers the wholesome tale of Sage and Tony, two teenagers in love, winningly played by Shannon DeVido and Ricky Wilson Jr. respectively. These two crazy kids are perfect for each other, but they still must face an assortment of adolescent tribulations, including mean cheerleaders, deciding who to take to the homecoming dance and worrying about whether one’s pot-growing moms might get busted by the cops.
What is definitely not a problem, however, is the fact that pretty Sage is a wheelchair user while Tony isn’t, or that at least half of the whole cast, kids and grown-ups alike, have a range of physical and mental disabilities. Instead, this profoundly inclusive work posits a world where it would be as utterly unnecessary to discuss someone’s different physical form or mental abilities as it would be to mention that Sage is white and Tony is Black. Why should anyone care anyway seems to be the unspoken question, especially when we’re all having so much fun.
