Housing is a critical issue for people with disabilities. More people with disabilities are becoming and staying homeless. CCDC supports the Right to Rest and believes homelessness needs comprehensive solutions, not involving criminalizing people for being too poor to afford housing. People with disabilities also suffer from a substandard housing in many cases. CCDC partners with the Denver Metro Fair Housing Center, a wonderful organization that helps address violations of the Federal Fair Housing Act.

CCDC also works with organizations like the Atlantis Community that help people with disabilities find housing. To learn more about the Atlantis Community, visit: www.atlantiscommunity.org
Until more housing is available, the biggest problem is simply lack of accessible, affordable housing.
