Community Vision’s Housing Access Program provides customized, one-on-one assistance and support for individuals and families looking to rent their own home. The Housing Access Program empowers individuals and families with disabilities with the opportunity to rent an affordable home in a community of their choice by offering valuable tools, tenant education, staff assistance, and resources.
