Maximum Accessible Housing of Ohio addresses an underserved population, assisting with accessible housing and realted issues. There are very few alternatives for help with housing and access for this community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When I first began to build wheel-chair ramps for low-income Cleveland residents, I quickly realized that the need was far to great to meet with few resources. Since then I have been attempting to partner and join efforts with others in the community who are interested in addressing mobility issues.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Build more accessible housing; make pople aware of the vast need for mobility and aging-in-place resources, so people will realize that this is not "somebody else's problem.

I have been a board member of Maximum Accessible Housing of Ohio since it's beginnings almost 30 years ago. It currently provides accessible, affordable housing for almost 150 families, and there is a waiting list. This demonstrates how necessary this type of housing is. This organization also offers seminars to educate consumers, builders, social workers, and others interested in learning how to implement universal design. Building on this past experience, we are excited to be in the midst of a capital campaign to fund the construction of a new, state-of-the-art, apartment building. It will include a model suite for visitors to tour and where seminars can be given.

I've seen the organization develop from one apartment community to five communities and the addition of the Accessible Housing Resource Center to provide advocacy, education, consulting, and other services.

Provide more outreach to the community and advocacy on the local, state, and national level to promote universal design and visitability in all new construction and renovations.

I was invited to become a MAHO Board Member earlier this year, and it was my pleasure to join an organization that provides for housing accommodations with universal design concepts. The tenants desire self-sufficiency, and the apartment communities are very tight-knit. The greater Cuyahoga County community supports this organization as well, with beautiful art and furniture donations. It is very exciting to work toward the new construction project for New Circle Vistas, to be built in University Circle amongst nationally renown museums, schools and medical facility.

I have had the opportunity to visit all 5 MAHO apartment communities and each time, have noticed how proud the residents are of their homes. The fact that there is a waiting list to move into these apartments shows how great the need is for accessible, affordable housing.

Find a way to inform more people about MAHO so they could recognize what a wonderful oganization it is and so they would assist financially the organization, in general and the New Circle Vistas campaign for a new state-of-the-art complex.

MAHO is unique in Cleveland because of their focus on universally accessible housing for people with mobility disabilities. In addition to owning and operating five communities, MAHO is in the midst of a successful capital campaign to build a sixth facility in the heart of University Circle. New Circle Vistas will be a state of the art building with universal accessibility design and energy efficiency measures built in from the ground up. Visit www.mahohio.org for more information on the accessibility planning for New Circle Vistas.

The Great!

In 2 years of Board service, I have seen MAHO grow into the responsibility of a multi-million dollar capital campaign and construction planning process. This is a very dedicated group of people who take very seriously the role of leadership and advocacy for universal accessibility housing.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to keep building new facilities to satisfy the MAHO mission and the demand in the Greater Cleveland area for accessible housing.
