NTHRA Focus Group Video Housing for Disabilities

In 2017, COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING joined the North Texas Regional Housing Assessment Team to conduct two Focus Groups to find out what types of housing individuals with disabilities want. Their parents also participated in these discussions. Here is a 3 minute video that explains the effort.

In the new year, COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING will continue to address affordable housing for citizens with disabilities in community-based, safe, neighborhoods. Services to live independently and community amenities are also necessary so that these citizens are able to work and socialize in the communities they are familiar with.

Some of our project are listed here:
  • Using legal process to encourage the Dallas Housing Authority to issue project-based vouchers for people with disabilities in Collin, Denton, Dallas, Ellis, Kaufman, Rockwall and Tarrant Counties.
  • Using legal process to encourage The Department of Housing and Urban Development to correct the nationwide misunderstanding of individual use of vouchers in voucher homes owned by family members.
  • Working with System Adequacy Subcommittee of the State IDD System Redesign Committee to address specific gaps in services for people who want to live more independently.
  • Working with Susan Murphree, Sr. Policy Specialist at Disability Rights Texas (Austin) to encourage DADS to make access to Protective Supervision easier.
  • Providing more Home Safety and Project Independence Training session to families.
CPSH welcomes your collaboration on moving this mission forward. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss working together or have questions about our work.

Happy Holidays and may your 2018 be your best year ever!

Best regards,
Robin LeoGrande, President
