IACC Working Group on Housing

Mission Statement

In the autism community we face a mounting housing crisis, with a growing population of autistic adults with diverse needs lacking appropriate living situations. The goal of this working group is to examine a wide variety of housing options and service models for people with autism, focusing on strategies to achieve a broad array of supported housing options throughout all of our communities that enable autistic individuals to achieve person-centered outcomes.
