I am guardian for a man with developmental disabilities who was the first person to purchase a home through Movin Out. It would never have happened without their help. They are the best organization in the country with a mission help people to acquire stable permanent housing. I know many people who have benefited from their expertise and assistance. A true gift to Wisconsin.

Movin' Out has helped clients of mine who have disabilities to become homeowners, in Madison and other parts of the state, both through solid housing counseling and deferred-payment financing. They have been very prompt and helpful in providing details of housing plans needed to complete legal work to make homeownership possible and take advantage of other funding sources.

Movin' Out is the only statewide organization in Wisconsin that is committed to developing safe, affordable and accessible housing for people with disabilities and their families. The guiding value is to develop housing that is scattered throughout the community, so that people with disabilities live, work and play where other people with or without disabilities live. This work is complex, it requires many fiscal partners as well as as partnerships with organizations that provide supports to people with disabilities. And most importantly, it requires that Movin Out always listens to the people who need housing. Movin Out changes people's lives. So far, over one thousand persons with disabilities who live across the state own their own homes thanks to Movin Out. And many people live in accessible, safe and affordable rental units developed by Movin Out.This commitment to bringing people home makes Movin Out a truly great non-profit organization!

People with disabilities have extremely low incomes, they often need to make due for about $700 each month. There are few more important things for any human being than a safe, affordable place to call home. Movin' Out Inc. is an organization that helps people with disabilities to have a real home. Across Wisconsin, over one thousand people with disabilities own their own home because Movin' Out Inc helped them with the complex process of getting grants and low interest loans so that they can afford their own home. Movin' Out Inc also owns and manages rental units for people with disabilities. The greatest strength of MOI is its deep commitment to respecting people with disabilities, listening to their voices and developing normal housing that is part of regular communities. MOI staff competence in understanding the complex world of housing financing and their ability to develop effective partnership is they key to the succesful outcomes.

I have seen the proud faces of people who have lived in large institutions and who now own their own homes, thanks to Movin' Out Inc. They now have a sense of place and permanence that they have never experienced before.

Develop more staff capacity to reach more people with disabilities and meet their housing needs.

Movin' Out began as a small NGO assisting people and families with disabilites find affoordable, long-term owner occupied housing; working with very limited incomes, Movin' Out has found homes for over 1,000 families. After merging with a similar oraganization, Movin' Out now provides rental housing; we work with service providers to match indivduals and families with housing. As a Board member I am extremely proud of the expertise of our staff, and how they work to make housing options available relying on serveral sources of funds to make a home a reality.

I have been newly assigned to the board of directors this year in order to share the perspective of a client served. I am very excited to share my advocacy experience to make a positive impact on a group such as this one. My family and I were on the verge of homelessness when the opportunity to be supported by a Movin' Out program was made available to us. They have continued to treat us with dignity and respect throughout the entire process and we sincerely appreciate that. Who knows what the future would have held for us without this positive opportunity for a hand up to improve the quality of our lives?! I look forward to paying it forward now!

In 2001, Movin' Out assisted me to organize the funding sources I needed to purchase my first home -- a condominium in downtown -- completely barrier free to meet my physical access needs. The Housing Counselor walked me through the whole process of pre-qualifying for a mortgage and coordinated all the paperwork so I could obtain city, state and county funds to assist with the down payment and a low-interest loan through WHEDA. A great organization to work with!

Movin' Out helped me purchase a home for me and my son. My life changed forever 5 years ago when i suffered a spinal cord injury and i was forced to re-evaluate my life goals. I went back to school and graduated in '10 with an associates degree in human services. I found a job and then my thoughts turned to purchasing a house. Movin' Out helped my by finding over $45000 in loans to help me buy my house. I could have never afforded such a beautiful home and i look forward to living there with my son. My counselor Amy, at Movin' Out helped me with every step of the way through the purchase offer right up to the closing. I'm forever grateful to her and Movin' Out for making my dream come true.

I have served on the board of directors for just over a year. I am a life long educator, and have dedicated my career to providing equitable services to students. When I found out about Movin' Out, and their mission of providing support to people with disabilities in owning their own home, in integrated community settings, I knew I wanted to get involved with this organization. It has been nothing but a positive experience to see the difference we make in the lives of individuals and their families. The staff is top-notch, the organization is well run, the fiscal house is in order, and it provides a life-changing service. Highly recommended.
