New housing development in Huntsville to include units for qualifying individuals with disabilities
Featured Quote: “Your housing and your transportation are probably … your largest purchase. And sometimes people with disabilities don’t have the income to support – financially support – buying a home or getting affordable housing that’s in a safe location, so you’ll see a lot of people living with other people, and there’s a large homeless rate as well.”Davina Patterson, executive director of Disability Resource Network
