Montgomery County Housing Initiative & Financial Coaching

Homeownership is as desirable for people with disabilities as it is for anyone else in America, yet it is estimated that less than one percent of Americans with disabilities are homeowners versus 66 percent of those without disabilities. Easter Seals Greater Houston is closing on 20-30 homes per year for individuals with disabilities who are low to moderate income and first time homebuyers.
