Housing and Residential Supports Tool Kit

The search for housing and residential supports can be challenging for a person with autism and his or her family.

We hope to make this often-complicated journey as simple and successful as possible for you by giving you the tools you need to make housing choices.

The purpose of this tool kit is to:

  • Provide an overview of housing options
  • Teach you about the supports and services often needed by adults with autism.
  • Describe options for funding
  • Create a structure to help you consider and plan for the types of services and supports needed.
  • Help expand opportunities to meet the housing needs of people with autism

Sections include:
