Autism Housing Pathways, The Arc of Massachusetts and Advocates for Autism of Massachusetts have formed The Autism Housing Think Tank Committee. The Committee is holding a Think Tank event in September with stakeholders from across Massachusetts; including parents, leaders from our state agencies, nonprofit housing organizations, legislators and housing industry experts. The mission of our “Housing Think Tank,” is to identify a range of housing models appropriate to the needs of people with autism; which can be funded publicly, privately, and through public-private partnerships.
These housing models will be assessed against a crowd-sourced set of principles that have been developed through a Facebook page, MA Autism Housing Think Tank.
We will be sharing and analyzing these models and principles to at our Think Tank event. The outcomes of the daylong event will help inform the Governor’s Autism Commission of Massachusetts.
