In June, Helen Lander's 20-year-old son Angus will be moving out of home.
Pretty typical right? Not quite.
Angus Lander has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and scoliosis. He is vision impaired, non-verbal, and confined to a wheelchair.
Angus will be moving into new disability accommodation being built by Griffith Post School Options (GPSO).
He will be living in a brand new house, which has been specially outfitted for all of his needs, and which is staffed around the clock.
Mrs Lander admitted there will "definitely be tears", when Angus moves out, but she says she is excited for him to live his own life.
"It's important for all young adults to have their own independence, and Angus is exactly the same," she said.
"He can live his own life, and he'll be with all the friends he's grown up with. He'll have access to all the supports he needs there."
Angus will be living in one of five houses being built by GPSO, each of which will house three people living with a disability.
Three of the houses will be for long-term stay, while the other two will be short-term accommodation.
Construction is well underway on the first two buildings, which are set to take in occupants from June 1.
GPSO general manager, Roy Catanzariti, says he is excited to see the project finally coming to fruition.
"We've been working on this for a couple years, so it's really exciting to see it start to take shape," he said.
Mr Catanzariti said there is a "chronic shortage" of suitable accommodation for people living with disability across the region, and this project, alongside their two existing short term accommodation buildings in Leeton and Griffith, will help meet demand.
"This is the new way of accommodating people with disabilities," he said. "This model of accommodation will incorporate technology which will be adaptable to each resident's needs."
Mr Catanzariti said he hopes the housing will help foster a community, while also giving the residents a chance to live their own life.
The accommodation is being built right next to the GPSO facility in Yoogali, and residents will have access to all the facilities at the centre. Regular buses will also allow them to travel to and from the Griffith CBD.
Construction on the other three buildings will begin once the first two are up and running.
