Pioneering New Solutions

We center on the perspectives of people with disabilities to inform better housing policies, design standards, development strategies, and resident services.

Together, we drive public-private partnerships and unlock funding for affordable, inclusive community housing.

Home for More

More resources for innovation and impact. More ground-breaking partnerships to realize more vibrant communities with opportunities for everyone.

There are four million adults with disabilities whose sole source of income is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). They are priced out of every housing market in the country and would have to spend 125% of their entire income to afford basic housing.

Disability-forward Design

Created in partnership with architects, designers, and disabled advocates and informed by The Kelsey’s housing pipeline, the Inclusive Design Standards aim to equip developers, builders, and designers with guidelines and frameworks for disability-forward housing creation.
