Advocacy

Housing Choices represents the many people with developmental disabilities throughout Santa Clara, San Benito, Monterey, and Santa Cruz Counties.

We work hard to influence public policy surrounding low income housing as well other issues that affect the rights of our clients. We are committed to supporting and promoting the voices of people with developmental disabilities and encourage them become effective self-advocates. Along with our clients, their parents, and other members of the community, we frequently attend and testify at City Council and other relevant meetings in hopes of influencing policy makers and community members to intentionally reshape and create neighborhoods which are inclusive to people with developmental disabilities.
