Your Support Makes A Difference

Housing for adults with cognitive disabilities is extremely limited in Alabama. According to kff.org, approximately 1,000 Alabamians with cognitive disabilities are on waitlists for home and community-based services. Some housing providers have a waitlist of more than a decade, and rent for available options is several times higher than Alabama’s median family income. This situation is expected to worsen, with a projected 50% increase in demand for affordable and accessible housing for people with disabilities in Alabama over the next 20 years.

Acquiring multi-tenant homes and preparing them to house individuals with cognitive disabilities requires a significant investment. All residents pay a reasonable monthly rent, and we raise funds to offset the cost of acquisition and personalization and to fund partial needs-based scholarships. This rent and donor-supported model minimizes debt-related expenses, ensuring organizational stability and financial accessibility for the Alabamians who need it most. As our capacity increases, our cost-per-resident decreases, creating a fly-wheel effect where rental income helps fund the acquisition and personalization of additional housing.
