Meet Stephen and Brandon

Mainstay Life Services operates five homes to serve 10 people living with a rare genetic condition known as Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). These customized homes are invaluable for the residents and their families.

While Mainstay helps to treat both physical and behavioral issues, the homes also offer another benefit to residents – an enjoyable, safe community. Just ask Stephen and Brandon, who feel supported by a structured home and daily routine, dedicated staff, and each other.

Living with a roommate going through similar struggles has helped both Stephen and Brandon to quickly adjust to their new living situation. Additionally, staff plan activities based on the men’s common interests – including visits to the local library and movie theater – so they can continue to get to know each other and the community in which they live.

After a lifetime of feeling different, Stephen and Brandon finally feel like they belong thanks to their Mainstay home and new community.
