2019 Housing Study

Discover more about what we learned.

The decision of where to live in the future can be a challenging one. People may not know what possibilities are available in the community, there may not be many options, and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families may disagree on the most important features in a home.

In 2019, The Arc partnered with CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership to better understand how people with I/DD and their families make decisions about where to live in the future if they are planning to leave the family home. We wanted to learn more about the process of searching for their next home. We also asked people about what they like and don’t like about their current home and where they would like to live in the future.
