Affordable Accessible Housing
Affordable accessible housing is often a critical element in enabling people with MS to perserve their independence and remain engaged in their communities. However learning about available housing options can be challenging. Whether seeking to renegotiate a mortgage, arrange home modifcations, apply for rental vouchers, or explore affordable assisted living, navigating the maze of agencies and funding sources supporting these alternatives and services can be daunting.
In order to make this process easier, we have developed a user-friendly resource to help families evaluate their housing needs and better understand the range of housing options available to them. View Affordable Accessible Housing Guide.
