We believe the "Fair Housing Act" is not FAIR!! Nor is it "Equal Opportunity" FACT: Only 5% of New Construction is required by law (FHA) to be wheelchair accessible and only 2% of those to be hearing or visually impaired. 16% of the population of Detroiters are categorized as handicapped. Most of the accessible housing complexes are senior buildings. Supply and Demand are unbalanced. WE NEED HOUSING!!! More and more, people w/ disabilities are homeless or dependent, if they have family. If you have a disability and you are under the age of 62 and do not have relatives to support you, you are literally forced into the streets or placed in assisted living or shared quarters.
LOOK FOR WOW FUNDRAISERS AND OUTREACH... TO ASSIST THIS NEED!!!!
If you would like to speak to us more about the plight people with disabilities face, in finding suitable housing, please attend one of our many meetings. We are looking to partner with like minds who want to help to put an end to the chance of a person with disabilities becoming homeless.
