Hawley Ridge Apartments is owned by Vision Forward. Vision Forward provides services, training and devices to persons with vision loss in Wisconsin.

Hawley Ridge was built with the needs of a blind or low vision person in mind. Counter tops with patterns that don’t disguise objects like cutlery, bordered carpet outlining hallways, thermostats with raised temperature marks and dissimilar colors on electrical outlets, and outlet covers that make identifying where a plug is, makes navigating the property manageable rather than a frustrating chore.

Thoughtful design makes life better for all of us. Thoughtful design like that of Hawley Ridge makes life immeasurably better for people with vision loss.
