In 2008 IEI purchased a duplex on Erin Way Street, also in Eugene.  That site was remodeled to meet the needs of five people with I/DD.  IEI received over $225,000 in grant funding to make the duplex possible, and is still in operation as well.  In early 2016, Independent Environments was able to focus on the needs of the people living at the home and downsized it from a 5 person residence to a 3 person residence.
