The historic Disability Housing Forum in Forsyth County this past Oct. 28th, 2021. Powerful presentation hearing from the voices of people with lived experience in disability, their family members, and professionals who shared resources and pathways to successful community-based living and supports. We gained a deeper understanding of the impact that the lack of available housing has on our community members who desire more independence and inclusion and possibilities for the future.
We hope you have a chance to watch the recording and also review the PowerPoint slides.
