Letting Go and Moving On
Housing Options for Individuals with Disabilities
Wednesday, May 26 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm | Zoom Webinar
Our society generally regards “moving out” as developmentally appropriate. However, according to statistics, 70% of young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities never move out of their familys’ homes because housing is scarce and too expensive (EasterSeals, 2016).
No matter the complexity of an adult’s disability, there is a living arrangement to satisfy his/her medical, emotional, physical and social needs. Families are even custom-designing the perfect housing “fit” for their family member.
