The Real Choice Initiative is a rights-based approach to housing justice for people with disabilities. Simply put, people with disabilities are excluded from suitable housing because of a lack of accessible units rented at prices that are sustainable for people who are often on fixed income and live below the poverty line. Our approach challenges structural barriers to living independently while identifying existing accessible housing opportunities and supporting people with disabilities to achieve their goals.

We now have a compiled dataset to work from to identify accessible housing in Multnomah County!

The dataset gives us a starting point from which to call property managers and management companies to determine the existence and availability of accessible units in publicly subsidized buildings. With this information, RCI will be able to connect people with disabilities to suitable housing, meeting a big need in our community.

It is time to start making calls. We are hosting a training on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 4 p.m. at SEIU 503 (6401 SE Foster Rd.) The training will outline the process we'll use for collecting the information and review the script for calling property managers.
