Adults living with disabilities in poverty comprise 30.7 percent of the impoverished population in America as a whole.

The number of persons with disabilities and disorders who are homeless is higher than the number of people who are living in poverty. People with disabilities have a difficult time finding a place to live, or a landlord who is willing to rent to them.Their disabilities demand adaptive supports.The housing resources for people with disabilities are inadequate. Programs, such as SSI and SSDI, are unable to keep people with disabilities from experiencing homelessness. Having a daughter with a disability, I know the frustrations of not having resources available. That's why I have started a nonprofit to provide book scholarships for kids who plan to attend college or are already enrolled.
