Accessible Housing Matters podcast
The Accessible Housing Matters podcast was created to help raise awareness about accessibility issues and housing. The podcast is all about connecting people with unique knowledge or expertise about housing and accessibility.
Our Founder and President, Paul Linet was recently on the podcast talking all about our pilot project that is bringing 50 accessible and affordable apartments to The Downs in Scarborough, Maine.
Disabled Americans Reap Remote-Work Reward in Record Employment
After suffering some of the worst job losses during the initial phase of the pandemic, people with disabilities are now benefiting from the remote-work trend it triggered. Advocates hope they will continue to reap such rewards, even as companies demand that employees return to the office.
“If you had asked me two years ago if I would ever return to work, I would’ve said no. It never entered my mind as a possibility until everyone was working remotely. It’s a much more comfortable situation when you can interview over Zoom and people don’t see a wheelchair as the first thing about you.”
Apple shares our belief that accessibility is a human right and has developed technology that helps individuals live independently.
