Options for Us: Housing for People with Disabilities
In 2016, the NSDRC Association and Foundation Boards began a housing engagement project called Options for Us – Housing for People with Disabilities on the North Shore with the goal of asking a range of people with disabilities and their families and caregivers about the current housing situation, and what would work better.
From March 2016 until January 2017 the project engaged more than 140 parents, family members and individuals from NSDRC programs, the North Shore Brain Injury Survivors Group, the North Shore Schizophrenia Society, the North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues, the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC’s Youth Without Limits Group, and NSDRC’s Supportive Transition Adult Education program.
Conversations ranged from quite structured (to establish core values) to very informal.
A report on the project’s findings will be released shortly. One of the issues that came up repeatedly is the need for a single comprehensive list of all the existing housing options for people with disabilities on the North Shore (including those with physical, developmental, sensory and psychiatric disabilities).
Toward that end we are currently contacting all the housing providers on the North Shore and asking them to complete a short template so that we may put together a single list. We will be sharing the Options for Us Report and introducing the comprehensive housing list shortly.
