Row of Houses

Housing plays an important role in ensuring the well being of people on the autism spectrum and helping them integrate into the community.

There is a variety of federal and private resources that can enable people to live in settings that best fit their needs. This page provides information about models of housing for people with disabilities and resources and programs related to disability housing.
