There's No Place Like Home

When most of us stop and think about it, our home, and the people who share it with us, defines a lot about our lives. It's the physical space where we greet each day. It's the people who we clock the most hours alongside. It's where we welcome guests, cozy up when we're sick, and retreat at the end of a long week.
But, for many adults with disabilities, a suitable home is hard -- sometimes almost impossible -- to come by. In the time that I moved five times, hundreds of thousands of individuals with disabilities across the U.S. have sat on housing waitlists. They're waiting, often many years, to make just one crucial move, the move out of their parent's home into community or independent living.
