Raise the Roof 2020 Summary

More often than not, housing doesn’t meet the needs of people with disabilities. Some housing is too expensive, and some housing is too hard to navigate physically, emotionally, or otherwise. In part, this is because there are not enough disabled leaders working in the housing field. Also, people with disabilities are not often taught about the housing field and how housing gets built. Because of this, they are not often given the opportunities to get more involved in the housing field. If there can be more disabled leaders in the field, they can help to transform housing so that it can be more affordable, accessible, and inclusive.
