We all have the same goal, so let’s speak the same language.
Bringing together multi-sector leaders from across the country, this groundbreaking study provides the foundational shared language needed for realizing, researching, and replicating housing solutions to support adults with A/I/DD. Housing developers, service providers, community-based organizations, and advocates can use this study as a tool to bring together crucial partnerships to address the current housing crisis.
Using the APITW nomenclature as our filter system, the AHN Housing Directory is now the largest segmented database of residential options available, breaking down barriers for researchers who want to study the lifelong impact of supportive housing for adults with A/I/DD.
A/I/DD Housing Market Analyses are now being conducted in major metropolitan areas across the country. Without the APITW nomenclature, it would not have been possible to collect and aggregate cross-state data as every state uses different terms to describe and implement residential options.
The APITW report features a Housing Market Guide of twelve diverse properties as well as in depth details of three properties. These proof points offer developers insights and examples to catalyze innovative housing development in their local community. APITW videos are being used to inspire others.
Prior to publication, while innovators struggled to describe their vision, there was no cross-state standard for describing what someone wanted in their housing or support options. Now the APITW Worksheets help guide stakeholders to describe their own housing or emerging development and/or advocate in their community.
The A Place in the World report as well as A Place in the World Housing Market Analyses all include statistics and specific recommendations for shifting policy and funding streams to meet demand based on data collected and analyzed.
