This webinar will discuss available housing programs for people with disabilities and how to make referrals to these programs, including shelter services, coordinated entry, supportive housing, public housing, site-based housing, vouchers, and housing supports. We will also consider programs that can assist with searching for housing and referrals to waivered services and supports that can assist people to stay in their homes.

About the Presenter

As a social worker in aging and disability services, Linnea makes referrals to waivered and community resources. She started her career in subsidy administration for housing choice vouchers and completed section 8 inspections. Then she was a float program coordinator for 12 different adult foster care programs, supported employment, and independent living skills programs assisting people with reaching their goals and maintaining a safe and enjoyable life. During this time, she became fascinated with housing options and dove into researching available resources. She became a Housing Navigator with Catholic Charities, where she completes Coordinated Entry assessments and referrals to supported housing. Currently, she enjoys sharing her knowledge of disability resources and housing along with how they intersect.
