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.
