Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs
Do you work with families on creating their independent living plan?
No, KeyREADY Living focuses on finding specific housing for individuals with disabilities once their independent living plan has been created. If you haven’t decided yet on whether an apartment or a house with roommates is right for you, we recommend that you work with an organization that is specially trained to help you with that process. Community for Permanent Supported Housing (CPSH) is an organization we recommend you start with in helping determine your living plan.
