The Need

Adults with autism and other intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) face a critical shortage of housing options and access to supports they need to thrive.

To drive future planning, funding and significant advancements in public policy the First Place Global Leadership Institute Center for Real Estate & Community Development is launching a comprehensive housing market analysis of needs and preferences in Greater Phoenix.

The Purpose

Collect data

Determine what individuals need and want.

Identify barriers

Identify barriers to meeting demand.

Work together

Demonstrate how the public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors can work together to mitigate displacement or homelessness.

In advance of identifying needs and preferences, First Place will host a virtual gathering to inform stakeholders with I/DD and their family members/guardians of housing and service delivery options with the goal of creating confidence that they have been sufficiently informed of available choices. 

This effort will also enlist input from a group of local leaders with a vested interest in preventing potential displacement and homelessness.
