The Right Fit celebrates a milestone
To close out National AccessAbility Week, DABC would like to highlight our Right Fit Program. The Right Fit is a multi-partner service designed to address the crisis in wheelchair accessible housing by matching affordable, accessible homes and independent living supports with people who need them in the Lower Mainland.
This spring, the Right Fit Program team has a lot to celebrate: We are pleased to announce that as of April 2023, we have placed 100 wheelchair users into accessible, affordable homes.
This is a key milestone, as we continue to experience a scarce supply of accessible, affordable housing in the province. Our waitlist is growing and to date, over 150 wheelchair users are still waiting to be matched to an accessible, affordable home in the Lower Mainland.
The Right Fit team is doing everything they can to uncover new supply of accessible housing. If you are a wheelchair user in need of an accessible home or a housing provider who has a vacant unit, please get in touch with us!
