Exploring Housing Options for People with Developmental Disabilities in BC

Author and Resource Info: 
BC Non‐Profit Housing Association Research Department, August 2009
Summary: 

From the Executive Summary:

Community Living BC (CLBC) convened a Housing Working Group in April 2008 to discuss the housing needs of adults with developmental disabilities in BC and develop strategies to support appropriate and affordable housing options. This group identified the need to produce research that would identify housing gaps and barriers to affordable housing for people with developmental disabilities, as well as creative solutions to address these housing challenges. The Housing Working Group established a Research Advisory Committee to address these research goals, chaired by the BC Non‐Profit Housing Association (BCNPHA). BCNPHA hired the Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC BC) as a consultant to conduct this research project. The objectives were to conduct a rapid review of housing options for people with developmental disabilities; collect and analyze quantitative data that assesses the need for housing options for people with developmental disabilities; and develop recommendations to address housing challenges.
