Accessible Dreams' Philosophy

woman in wheelchair Even today, builders continue to build with the same decades-old standards. That’s thousands of new homes with the same inaccessible entrances, hallways, and interior doors.

Accessible Dreams is dedicated to increasing the number of barrier-free home choices for persons with disabilities throughout western Pennsylvania.

It is our belief that 10% of every new community should be built using Universal Design standards. We’ve found that the demand for accessible housing crosses all demographics, including working persons with disabilities, persons on social security, veterans, seniors, and families with children or parents with disabilities.

For the past seven years, we have provided a range of real estate and housing development services targeted specifically to the needs of people with mobility and other disabilities.

By serving as a nonprofit developer of accessible homes, to date Accessible Dreams has assisted more than 150 individuals and families living in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Washington, and Westmoreland counties of western Pennsylvania to remain in their communities by making the places they live more accessible.


Accessible Dreams believes that truly integrated communities are those that support people with disabilities beyond simply their housing accommodations, affecting substantial change in their ability to participate both socially and economically in that community. This necessitates changes not only to housing policies, but also to the myriad other services and support systems that people with disabilities access on a daily basis.

With this in mind, Accessible Dreams sees real opportunities to move beyond housing development services, re-framing its business model to lead a Center for Independent Living (CIL): a consumer‑controlled, community‑based, cross‑disability, nonresidential agency that is designed and operated within western Pennsylvania by individuals with disabilities, which provides an array of independent living services.
