There's No Place Like Home: Housing and Disability Issues

 The search for housing can be a very stressful and multifaceted process for veterans with service-connected disabilities. Among other things, this process requires the evaluation of different factors, such as one’s credit score, housing costs in relation to income and employment status, and space requirements. Many veterans with disabilities encounter stress during the search process and experience dissatisfaction with their housing, especially, when considering their disabilities in relation to their housing circumstances and needs. This webinar will discuss findings from a study which focused on the rental housing search and occupancy experiences of veterans with service-connected disabilities.
