Hope House Foundation is a Hampton Roads nonprofit organization that believes neighborhoods and communities are enriched when everyone in them participates to the fullest extent possible, including people with disabilities. In addition, citizenship should not be limited by the attainment of certain skills, but is a right that belongs to us all and that this right can only be fully enjoyed when people have as much control over their day-to-day life as possible. And that includes living in one’s own home, with one’s own name on the lease.

Brian writes a regular article in the Hope House Foundation newsletter, “Hope News” See below for archives of his articles.
