Getting My Own Address

Getting My Own Address (GMOA) is a program to educate and assist individuals with any disability, their families, and other natural and professional supports to create a successful long term housing plan that can be implemented at a time of choice or need. 

The GMOA program and guide was compiled with input from individuals with autism spectrum disorders and   more

Getting My Own Address Support Group

The topic covered each month is based on the needs and requests of the group participants. Informative speakers will discuss funding, supports, estate planning, legal issues, roommates and more. Participants may ask questions, collaborate on creative solutions to challenges, meet other individuals and families, share resources, find potential roommates and offer mutual support.

All persons with disabilities, family members and supporting professions are welcome to attend support group meetings. Reservations are not necessary.
