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.

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.

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.

I have worked collaboratively with Movin Out for a number of years. The lives they have positively effected through their hard work and determination is incredible. They do fantastic things in the way of affordable, accessible and quality housing opportunities. They listen, the share, they are innovative and are some of the most creative people I have had the opportunity to work with.

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 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

The Great!
