Hofstra University and the Disability Opportunity Fund is distributing this very important survey to individuals and families of people with disabilities on Long Island to assess their need for services.

The National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University is working with the Disability Opportunity Fund to uncover gaps and identify creative solutions for housing and related services for people with disabilities and their families living on Long Island.  In an effort to explore both the gaps, as well as potential solutions, we are speaking with a range of stakeholders in a series of focus groups, and conducting a population-based survey to assess need and demand, and to give all consumers an opportunity to have their voice heard.

 

Our goal is to use the data from the Wait No More Survey to spark creative collaborations among policymakers, providers, developers and funders to find a range of safe, affordable, accessible, preferable and sustainable housing options for this underserved, at-risk population.

 

PLEASE ASSIST US IN OUR EFFORT BY FORWARDING

THIS EMAIL AND LINK TO THE SURVEY TO YOUR CLIENTS 

SO THAT EVERY FAMILY IN NEED CAN HAVE THEIR VOICE HEARD!
