COLUMBIA HOUSING MARKET STUDY
We Need YOU!
COLUMBIA HOUSING MARKET ANALYSIS – WE NEED YOUR OPINIONS!
SOS Care in collaboration with The First Place Global Leadership Institute Make Waves Center for Community Development is conducting a comprehensive housing market analysis to determine the needs and preferences of adults with autism and/or other intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the Columbia area.
Adults with autism and/or other intellectual/developmental disabilities (A/I/DD) face a critical shortage of housing options and access to supports they need to thrive. To drive future planning, funding and advancements in public policy, we are completing a comprehensive housing market analysis of needs and preferences in the Columbia area and need your help!
