What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Per 2014 US Census data, 14% of the Cuyahoga County population has a disability and 22% is over the age of 60. And yet, the 2011 American Housing Survey found that less than 1% of housing in the US includes basic universal design features. Public spaces are also challenging for this population: seniors surveyed by The Center for Community Solutions for the Age-Friendly Cleveland Assessment (January 2016) reported unsafe sidewalks, a dearth of benches, and inaccessible public restrooms. Without proper accessibility, seniors may have to and people with disabilities definitely have to rely on the help of others to live a normal day in their own home and neighborhood. Maximum Accessible Housing of Ohio (MAHO) works to fill the gap, advancing accessibility, independence, and inclusion in homes and communities.
