Affordable Accessible Housing - in South Florida

A Guide for People with MS in South Florida
Affordable accessible housing is often a critical element in enabling people with MS to preserve their independence and remain engaged in their communities. However, learning about available housing options can be challenging. Whether seeking to renegotiate a mortgage, arrange home modifications, apply for rental vouchers, or explore affordable assisted living, navigating the maze of agencies and funding sources supporting these alternatives and services can be daunting.
To make this process easier, the National MS Society has developed a user-friendly resource to help families evaluate their housing needs and better understand the range of housing options available to them. This resource addresses each of the subjects listed below and utilizes hyperlinks to provide users with direct access to the organizations and/or agencies relevant to that topic area.
Financial resources and strategies for the homeowner
Tips for avoiding foreclosure
Finding accessible homes and apartments
Financial resources for home modifications
Working with contractors
Protections against housing discrimination
Rental assistance
Subsidized housing
Supportive housing options
Since housing options and resources vary significantly around the country, this resource has been designed to provide not only a significant amount of general information, but to link directly to local resources and contacts.
