Accessible Dreams is a non-profit real estate developer, builder, and service provider, advocating for and specializing in the development of barrier-free homes. We build and design new homes or we modify existing homes in neighborhoods where our client with disability CHOOSES to live.
We found that the demand for accessible housing crosses over all demographics, including working persons with disabilities, persons on social security, veterans, seniors and families with children or parents with disabilities. This group represents a niche, but this niche represents a large community with unsatisfied demand that only continues to grow.
Today builders continue to build wth the same decades old standards. We continue to add thousands of new homes with the same size hallways and all the entrances to the home are the same, unaccessible size. Accessible Dreams is providing a voice that says we need to build 10% of every new community using Universal Design standards. Universal Design provides the basis for a “forever” home, and it doesn’t cost any more to add an entrance and one bath when you are building new. Just that one change, creates a home that a child with a disability can participate in a birthday party, or a grandmother with aging joints can enjoy Sunday dinner with her family.
