Housing & Home Modifications
Our motto is “Our Homes Not Nursing Homes.” TRPIL is dedicated to assisting people with disabilities find the housing they want to live in — be it rent or own, apartment or house, modified or built to suit.
Each Independent Living Specialist can help educate people on their options in federal, state, and local housing resources and advocates, including things like fair housing, utility assistance, legal aid, and rental rebate programs.
If you or anyone in your family needs to adapt your home to create accessibility — TRPIL Community Services can help.
Staying in your home may be as simple as adding a ramp, lowering a counter, or widening a door.
Sometimes you may need a larger project completed, such as modifying an existing bathroom for accessibility or creating a first floor barrier-free master suite.
Our ADA design consultant can provide you with a list of modifications that can be completed; we can assist with creating the specifications for builder bids, and work with you to select the appropriate builder.
No matter what the size of the project, the opportunities to stay in your own home exist.
