George Braddock is President of Creative Housing Solutions LLC. He pioneered the implementation of person-centered planning principles to homes for people with disabilities. George provides environmental engineering services for persons with intellectual and physical disabilities, families, providers and governmental agencies.

George brings to this work an extensive construction background from the field with experience gained from the completion of over 1,500 person-centered projects. He has contributed to the closure of three major state institutions adding significantly to this effort by creating community-based person-centered physical environments that work and make sense for the people who will live and work there. More than 1,000 individuals previously institutionalized now live in community in homes developed, designed and or/constructed by Mr. Braddock.

In addition to developing welcoming and inclusive multi-family housing opportunities for people with ID/DD, George’s work involves developing inclusive, authentic community opportunities for people with disabilities.  Further, he has recently published by the State of New York OPWDD: Making Homes That Work: A Resource Guide for Families Living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Co-occurring Behaviors.

    Thank you Mr. Braddock,
    This is one of the things I worry about most, is were my son who is 12 and does not speak, were he will live and take care of him when I’m no longer here. He is autistic, and shows people what he wants. Do these housing developements have someone with them? I’m a worried single mother? Thanks again for all u have done!

    Housing for adults is a very important issue. I should know, I’m an adult with Asperger’s, and housing has been one of the biggest struggles in my life for the past four years, or ever since I left college. I do not make enough money on disability for an apartment of my own, so I usually rent rooms – but getting along with others when you have so much trouble understanding them can be challenging, to say the least! I have a long list of things that didn’t work and a very short list of anything that does. Community living is very important to those with Asperger’s and autism, because this can be a very lonely disorder. I think this article sums up some of the challenges pretty well http://www.aspergerssociety.org/articles/44.htm . I will try to make the chat if I can.
