Independence & Choice in the Community

Supportive Housing focuses on integration to allow persons with disabilities to live in the communities of their choice. As states and localities downsize institutions to improve outcomes, supportive housing is an effective solution for addressing the needs of persons in nursing homes, or nursing home eligible, who prefer to remain in the community; those returning to communities from incarceration, and; individuals with psychiatric, intellectual or developmental disabilities or a mix of challenges who are unnecessarily institutionalized in facilities, large group homes, or board and care housing.

Housing Options

As states and communities across the country work to create integrated neighborhoods and environments, supportive housing plays a major role—advancing opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live in the settings of their choice.
