I have worked with Movin' Out for many years and I can tell you that they do very important work, and do it well. Movin' Out not only helps change the lives of people with disabilities through home ownership and community presence; they change communities too. Because of Movin' Out, many, many people who are at risk of living at the margin of society are experiencing the pride of home ownership and contributing in significant ways to their communities. One of the people whom I personally know is Sue, who dreamed of someday owning her own home. Because of Movin' Out, that dream has become a reality, and her quality of life has improved dramatically.

Movin' Out is a great place to volunteer because your work is directly linked to making life a little better, a little easier for people with disabilities who are also living on poverty income.

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

By seeing the impact of formerly marginalized people in a position to take on ordinary roles of neighbor and gardener.

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

More visibility so funders and donors would see that something really rare and good is happening at Movin Out.

As a developer we have worked with Movin' Out Inc. providing affordable, quality,accessible housing over the past 10 plus years. We have closed more than 30 transactions, all of which were were handled extremely professionally by the Movin' Out staff. The communication lines were always open and promises made, were kept. It is always a GREAT PLEASURE to attend a Movin' Out closing and see the joy on the faces of the new owners and their family. Home ownership gives the Movin' Out clients a sense of pride that is as rewarding as anything we see in our business! Jay Bruner President of Bruner Realty and Mgmt., Inc.

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

The rehab, conversion and sale of over 30 affordable condominium homes to disabled individuals who desired to own their home and live independently. In addition, last year we worked with Movin' Out and Community Living Connections Inc to remodel 12 units to safe and accessible apartments which are now occupied by 14 happy residents.

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

Make more funding available to them so they could expand their services to a greater number of deserving individuals!

Movin' Out really makes a difference in the lives of people affected by a disability. Housing is a huge factor in maintaining independence and they provide that critical assistance for people.

Our organizations collaborated to provide many homes for people affected by a disability. Housing provides financial stability and independence.

This organization should remain exactly as it is. If I could make changes, I would help to keep them well funded so that they can continue their excellent work.

I have helped people that receive support from Moving Out acceive their goal of home ownership. I am a realtor and love helping make this happen. Moving Out does an outstanding job of making things work and allowing people the control they deserve and the support they need. Everyone should be allowed to own a home if this is what they want. Moving Out makes this happen and I have been glad to be part of the process.

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

I have watched indivduals become empowered due to their ability to own a home.

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

I would encourage them to reach out moreto people who have mental illness.

I love being a board member. One thing I would like to continue to do is help disabilities. I am low income and disabled myself. I moved in with Movin outs help. It is cheaper to own. We do need to figure out how to get more disabilities in condos. You can decorate, paint a condo the way you want it. My painted walls help me calm down when I'm upset. Coming home to my own place is great. I done alot of remodeling to my place so I can start having parties for people in Wheel Chairs and Walkers who miss out on alot of stuff. DISABILITIES NEED THE HELP FROM BUSINESSES LIKE THIS

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

being there to help people in need and others that would like to own witch is cheaper and helps us save in the long run.

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

pray that we find organizations to help with grants and money.
