RESIDENTIAL ASSISTED LIVING LEADERS SUPPORT CALIFORNIA LEGISLATOR’S BID TO INCREASE THE FREEDOMS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

The Residential Assisted Living National Association encourages California legislators to pass AB 2619, increasing the freedom of people with disabilities to live in residential communities.

People with Disabilities have the Right to Live in Residential Neighborhoods.

California has introduced a new bill that would allow the arbitrary 6-person limit for people with disabilities living in a residential home to be lifted as long as the home has sufficient square footage and a sufficient number of rooms to comply with the Uniform Housing Code.

The bill is expected to be heard in committee on March 21.

“Our members are happy to see the California legislature take action to increase the freedom of people with disabilities to live in integrated communities of their choice. Assembly Member Jim Peterson has correctly identified a needed change to protect the dignity of the community,” said Brian Pinkowski.

“We want to extend our support to California Legislators working to increase access to community-based housing for people with disabilities and to end discriminatory housing practices against people desiring to live in residential care facilities.”

Brian Pinkowski, President, Residential Assisted Living National Association.
