Housing Individuals with Disabilities is Challenging with Rising Prices
By Lois M Healy - CEO/Project Leader
Housing people that are disabled and are becoming homeless is challenging to say the least due to rising rent prices and prices to build and with so many people that are disabled and elderly becoming homeless with no where to go. We have just been awarded funds to build 5 more SRO houses which will house either 8 disabled couples per house or 4 individuals per house. That is the good news! Your support is needed to help with Case Management, items to furnish the houses with and simple things like food and clothing.
Most of the disabled individuals that have spent any time on the street in addition to health issues have severe mental health issues so when we house them it does not stop there, we connect them with counseling, transportation and in-home care. The funds you donate do make a difference!
