Getting My Own Address

Getting My Own Address for People with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Developmental Disabilities

Getting My Own Address (GMOA) is a program for people with autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities and their families.  Community Housing network offers a multi- faceted GMOA program which includes a written guide, monthly housing support groups, informative workshops, a roommate database and one-on-one assistance and an individualized housing plan.

To incorporate real world experience, the GMOA guide was compiled with input from individuals with autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities, and their families and supports.  The information and worksheets included offer clear steps, options and choices to allow you to work towards the transition to independent living at the pace that works best for you.  This step by step guide is available in print (for a nominal cost) or for free online at: http://www.communityhousingnetwork.org/GMOA

The Housing Support Group creates an environment where individuals and families can learn from one another, share resources and make connections with potential roommates. One group meets the 3rd Tuesday each month at 6:00 p.m. at Community Housing Network's Troy office: 570 Kirts Blvd., Suite 231, Troy.  Another group meets the second Thursday of each month from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Apollo Center: 2029 N. Milford Rd., Highland. 

Community Housing Network's Roommate Database provides information regarding home-sharing opportunities for people with disabilities living in Macomb and Oakland Counties. The goal is to encourage arrangements that will help to create affordable housing opportunities.  No identifying information is shared through this website but it does provide a brief explanation of an individual’s situation so that others can determine if they may have common interests.

There are many options to consider when an individual or family is setting a housing goal.  The Getting My Own Address program can be an important tool to make a successful housing transition.
