A Better Way To Think About Housing

There is a different way to think about ‘housing’ for people that have a developmental disability that I’ve found super impactful for the families that I’ve been coaching, and I want to share it with you.

This thinking was first introduced to be by Michael Kendrick, and when put into practice, it transforms how we think about ‘housing’ as families. This is the thinking that my family used to help Sarah get a home of her own, and that the eight Oak Park Families used to create homes with their loved ones.

In this video, I offer you a better way to think about ‘housing’ that I think will be really helpful for your family.

If you’re interested in ‘housing’ (or creating a home, like I talk about in the video), I’m facilitating a free online event with the Oak Park Family Group on September 30th that I think you will enjoy. Three families will be sharing their stories of creating an individualized home with their family member, and I’ll be facilitating conversation between families.
