    Thank you to those who attend our Housing Taskforce meeting this past Friday! If you were unable to attend, I strongly encourage you to take a look at Kat Wood's Innovations in Independence PowerPoint presentation posted in this ACC community, it was stellar. 
    I wanted to draw your attention to an upcoming ANCOR-led webinar Inclusive and Technology-Forward Affordable Housing Solutions on Wednesday, April 12, 1-2 pm EDT we encourage you to register today.

    Join us in this webinar where two providers from Portland, Oregon will share their practical experience in creating affordable and accessible housing opportunities. One provider decided to construct the housing themselves, while the other worked in collaboration with affordable housing developers.

    Regardless of the method, the presenters will explain the reasons why inclusive and accessible affordable housing is essential for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and the community. They will also demonstrate how universal design and technology-driven solutions can have a significant impact. Additionally, these two providers will emphasize the importance of architects, builders, developers, community members, and funders working together to make accessible and affordable housing a reality.
