Success Stories
Resiliency in Finding Affordable Housing
A consumer contacted Alliance in late March seeking housing. The Community Inclusion Specialist (CIS) was able to obtain the property list to provide to the consumer. The CIS assisted the consumer in obtaining her benefit verification awards letter.

Through the assistance provided by the ADANC staff and technological support, the consumer was able to email her list of desired Targeted Unit Program properties and her Supplemental Security Income awards letter. 
Developing Confidence Through Peer Support
Peer support from an Alliance staff member provided a consumer with the skills and confidence to present her case in a work mediation meeting. During peer support, the Community Inclusion Specialist provided recommendations on how to best articulate and document information.

The consumer practiced these skills over a two month period and was able to have an effective employment mediation meeting at her workplace. 
Our Vision is to see North Carolinians who experience a disability live in the communities of their choice and be empowered to address their own needs.

With your support we can make that vison reality!
