Why Give to QUAD?
Every year, hundreds of Oregonians sustain an injury, survive a disabling event, or that seriously hinders their ability to live independently. Without accessible, affordable housing and reliable attendant care, these adults have limited opportunities to regain their independence and lead self-sufficient lives. That’s why QUAD builds and manages affordable, wheelchair-accessible apartments and specialized care in Portland, Oregon.
People who can and should make lifestyle decisions for themselves must often accept less-than-desirable situations, like living in a nursing home or with family members in inaccessible housing. Nursing and adult foster care facilities can meet an individual’s physical care needs, but most don’t offer choices in care routines, scheduling flexibility or empowering services that encourage self-reliance. Some people hire an in-home personal care attendant to assist with daily activities but realize that finding and keeping dependable caregivers is a vast and ongoing hurdle. Disabled adults who can make lifestyle decisions for themselves must often accept undesirable living situations due to income restrictions or lack of availability. Subsidized housing combined with dependable personal care is often the best and only viable living solution to foster valuable independence for people with severe disabilities.
