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.
