Advocacy and Resources

Are you seeking housing?

Sometimes it’s easier to sit down and talk on the phone with someone who understands how it all works, rather than try to make sense of scattered and confusing information.

Let us help you get clear on your needs and desires in order to facilitate productive conversations with your regional center service coordinator.

We want to be a resource for you. We can work together to meet your needs. Here’s how it might work:

  1. You contact us.
  2. We schedule an assessment interview with you, find out what you already know and help you get clear on your needs and desires.
  3. We help you create a list of relevant questions to ask your regional center service coordinator.
  4. Then we can point you in the direction of any resources that we have on hand.
  5. When appropriate, we will make contacts on your behalf.
  6. You contact your regional center service coordinator and ask for a list of supported living providers in the geographic area you wish to live.
  7. Find out if they already have a housing coordinator who will work with you, and if they don’t, begin your housing search by contacting property owners.  We can assist you in this step if needed.

Ultimately, where you decide to live is up to you, but we are here to help every step of the way.

Fueling Housing and Community Options for Adults with Autism and Other Neurodiversities


From the introduction: “Like everyone, people with autism and other neurological differences seek to lead full lives with relationships, pursuits, community and choices. Housing plays an instrumental role. However, many adults with neurological differences struggle just to find information about housing that meets their preferences and support needs, let alone housing itself. Even when they find housing aligned with their interests, it is too often financially unattainable or it is already fully occupied.”
