There is a great need for accessible housing: Per the 2010 U.S. Census, 13% of Americans have a mobility disability and the 13% of Americans are over the age of 65. These numbers will increase as baby boomers get older. And yet, the majority of housing stock is inaccessible to people with mobility disabilities. People with disabilities and seniors need knowledge, advocates, and builders to help ensure that appropriate housing is available.
The Anderson Center for Accessible Living allows us to provide this much-needed training and information on accessible housing to several groups: people with disabilities and seniors, families and caregivers, and social service and housing professionals. Our activities include:
- Seminars and presentations on accessible housing
- Tours of our Demonstration Unit, for individuals and small groups
- Development of a comprehensive accessibility website
