Video #6 - Robert

Video #6 Published on Dec 7, 2016

Robert lives in a one bedroom, garden style apartment. He rents his unit with assistance from a housing choice voucher. He received a reasonable accommodation for an exception to the denial criteria for admission to the voucher program. Robert is on the Medicaid Waiver waitlist, so he receives privately funded support through The Arc’s Special Needs Trust program to help with his budget, finances and the housing search, and assistance from his family to help with the move.

This video was filmed in Summer 2016 as part of a six video series highlighting people with developmental disabilities living in integrated community settings. The series was done by The Arc of Northern Virginia in combination with videographer David Buerk and made possible with grant funding from the Virginia Housing Development Authority.
