So, what’s the problem?
We know there’s a shortage of housing options for people with disabilities. Not being satisfied with the typical answer of “we just need more housing” led us on a journey to know more. This piece chronicles the convening of three relevant stakeholder teams creating and scoping a problem definition and then evaluating and ranking six existing housing models. The Together We Can Do More process mirrors this one in many ways, including intense problem defining, cross sector stakeholder engagement and proposed solutions. The insights and lessons learned here continue to inform our work to this day.
