Home Ownership Made Easy (HOME) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to create independent, empowering living experiences for persons and families with developmental disabilities through the provision of safe, secure and affordable rental opportunities. To do this, HOME accesses all available municipal, state, federal and private resources that serve these consumers by building successful relationships and pursuing all funding opportunities. Our goals are achieved through the combined efforts of teamwork, advocacy and action, ensuring alternative housing opportunities today and in the future.
Founded in 1989, HOME works closely with the Westside Regional Center (WRC) and South Central Regional Center (SCLARC), part of the State of California network of public agencies that provide support to the developmentally disabled community. Over the last 26 years, HOME has developed, acquired, rehabilitated, and created 73 units of affordable housing for individuals with developmental disabilities, living primarily in the West Side and South Central areas of Los Angeles.
