Because of costs of placing computers in schools for students to learn and practice on, it has become a PTA responsibility to raise money to pay for the computers. The paper drives, carnivals, book fairs, and merchandise sales conducted by the PTA groups are in- creasing to raise a.dditional funds, = 'i * r It's not like having a studio apartment in the middle of a big institutional building and it's not the same as a room in a boarding house. And best of all, it's not like living at home at age 24. Two weeks ago, a group home for disabled people opened at the corner of Se- cond Avenue and Andrews Street. The home is a halfway stop for the handicapped, caught between wanting more freedom and not hav- ing the skills for total in- dependence.. It's a project funded by state and federal grants with a lot of city cooperation. Residence East is the pro- ject of a group of Eastside parents who have developmentally disabled children. In 1973, they started looking for supervis- ed housing for their kids who, at age 20 and older, were no longer happy living under the protective care of home. The parents also realized their children were not capable of living in- dependently in the communi- ty, even though many of them were anxious to be on their own. In the past decade about 10 facilities like Residence East have been established up on the Eastside. Issaquah was chosen as a site, says Ex- ecutive Director Robbie Rohr, because of its reputa- tion. "This city has been very receptive to the needs of han- dicapped," said Rohr. "It's a model city." There are eight residents at the group home, four men and four women mostly from Issaquah. They work at Community Enterprises of Issaquah or attend Issaquah High School, sometimes do- ing parttime work at CEI. It is one of the only sheltered workshops on the Eastside.

Inside, residents enjoy a game of foosball. of CEI each morning. At CEI, workers learn the basics of simple labor. At the group home they learn a variety of things they must know if they want to leave the workshop and enter the job market.
