Programs: We partner with cohousing communities across the country to create affordable rental opportunities for low-income adults with disabilities. We also educate intentional communities about the benefits to themselves and others of building their communities so that they are fully accessible and visitable.

Mission:
A Home in Community helps people with disabilities fulfill their dream of living in communities where they benefit from daily connections with others, while having opportunities to support and give back to the community where they live.
Results:
We have purchased a unit at CoHo Ecovillage in Corvallis, Oregon which is fully accessible. We maintain it as a permanently affordable rental unit for low-income individuals with physical disabilities. We are also in the process of updating our website to make additional information available to other cohousing communities acorss the country.
