Narrative

Autism Housing Pathways (AHP) is a family-driven, membership-based organization serving individuals and families in Massachusetts impacted by autism and other developmental disabilities. We have the following core goals:

  • Building the capacity of families to find or create housing solutions for their family members with disabilities;
  • Improving the professional development of direct support staff;
  • Conducting research on the housing needs and resources of the Massachusetts autism community;
  • Building the capacity of the housing sector to meet the residential needs of individuals with autism

Autism Housing Pathways (AHP) was created to provide information, support and resources for families who seek to find or create secure, supported housing for their adult children with disabilities. Autism Housing Pathways seeks to foster education and awareness and disseminate information about the creation of self-directed housing for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities; to promote and support the formation and maintenance of such housing; and to assist families in creating self-directed housing for their adult children that supports their residential, recreational and community needs.

Autism Housing Pathways supports families in forming a variety of housing models by providing a clearinghouse for information on such topics as governmental funding streams for housing and services; adaptive skills and technology to support independent living; financing; ownership models; housing design and construction; and creating a vision. AHP will also share information about housing groups, developers, lawyers, vendors and consultants that can assist families in creating housing. We are committed to providing a community of engaged and caring families and individuals who will support all of our family members and those who care for them to create and maintain safe, dignified, healthy and respectful living communities.

Note: AHP is a membership based organization. It provides basic information to the general public and more detailed information to members who pay a modest annual membership fee ($50 per year).
