Finding a safe place to live is a key component of a good life. Hamilton County DD Services collaborates with families, service and support administrators, providers, landlords and property owners to help people with developmental disabilities discover the best housing option for them.

“We try to match a person’s needs with what’s available in the community,” said Tennille Raines, HCDDS Housing Coordinator. “We also help bridge the gap between facility-based housing and community living.”

HCDDS works closely with partners like the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority and the Hamilton County Planning & Development Office to increase the number of affordable and accessible housing units in our area.

We also provide a variety of housing resources including Home Think Tank, which hosts roundtables, trainings and other events for families and people with disabilities to learn more about housing.

Lucinda Hurst said connections she made to other parents through Home Think Tank allowed her to be proactive when planning for her son’s future housing needs. “We met lots of really great people who helped me solidify what my plan could look like for Andy,” she said.
