TOGETHER WE CAN DO MORE
We believe that this challenge can be solved when people, funding, and regions come together with a shared commitment to inclusion. The Kelsey led a nine-month organizing and pre-development process in the Bay Area for disability inclusive housing. Recognizing that the disability housing crisis will not be solved by one organization or one sector alone, the project convened teams of cross-sector stakeholders to harness existing resources in the Bay Area and direct them towards a shared solution. Throughout the process, the focus was on effective strategies for public-private partnerships, key areas requiring additional advocacy, and sustainable strategies for inclusive community development. The Kelsey also worked with existing organizations in disability housing to showcase existing best-practices as well as identify where key challenges exist and how they can be overcome.
