The catastrophic flooding inundating Texas and surrounding areas has had a devastating impact on the children, adults and families our chapters serve, as well as our staff and volunteers. Now forecasts are predicting that Louisiana is in Hurricane Harvey’s path. Through your support, we will be able to help chapters of The Arc in Texas and if needed any impacted chapters in Louisiana. Your gift will ensure that we will be able to continue to provide supports and services for individuals with disabilities and their families during this trying time. Help those affected by the hurricane today. Photo: Reuters / Jonathan Bachman

More than 40 percent of the homeless population are people with disabilities. Increasingly, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are navigating crises brought by lack of affordable housing and the limited financial resources of a fixed income. Christa’s journey highlights many of the challenges people with I/DD must face to access stable housing.
