Being part of the community and living as independently as possible are among the most important values and goals shared by people with disabilities, their families, and advocates. A home of one’s own – either rented or owned – is the cornerstone of independence for people with disabilities. However, people with disabilities currently face a severe housing crisis and often face discrimination when seeking housing.
