Summary: The "My Home...My Choice" video shows how people with developmental disabilities can learn how to buy and own their own home. This project started when advisory groups began looking at the obstacles in housing for people with development disabilities. Innovative programs and improved attitudes have brought new opportunities to people with disabilities. The Self-Determination Housing Project is funding eleven demonstration projects across the state.
