About Us

Since 1983, Specialized Housing, Inc. has created supportive housing opportunities for adults with disabilities in condominiums and apartments in the greater Boston area and other locations in New England and in the United States.

The mission of Specialized Housing is to promote independence through home ownership, work, an active social life and community connections, a community of friends for learning, fun, and growth, and most important, an antidote to the loneliness that adults with disabilities often experience.

The first Brookline household celebrated its 29th anniversary in 2012. All but one of the original members of the household still live together, working, taking care of their house, and enjoying their community. Other households in Brookline and Cambridge have 20+  years of independent living to celebrate.
