The Timbers promotes independent living for people with disabilities.
“I love living at the Timbers because it is accessible, friendly and I’ve made a lot of friends. A lot of apartment communities really don’t feel like home, but the Timbers truly is home for me.”
The Timbers is an independent living option for people with disabilities and the elderly developed by CPRF and located on its campus in Wichita, Kan.
The 100-unit apartment community, which opened in 1979, is the first such facility in the nation. It was funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (202 section 8) for people with disabilities.
Modifications for accessibility are incorporated throughout the community, including: roll-in showers, roll-under sinks and counters; automatic doors; accessible switches; adapted laundry facilities; and an accessible, outdoor swimming pool.

“I love the landscape and the natural beauty of the Timbers.”
Residents - from singles to families - enjoy the freedom of independent living while participating in community-based groups, such as the Residents' Council and the Timbers Legislative Committee.
Community safety is promoted by on-call staff and security monitoring, and the Timbers is gated to minimize through traffic. The community is also conveniently located near Wichita State University - a feature attractive to those who attend college.
Timbers units are currently available for people seeking accessible housing.
