Housing First: A Special Report was a yearlong reporting project of NPR News exploring the housing dilemmas of Americans with special needs and how lack of housing can stymie their efforts to join mainstream society. They developed a wonderful collection of articles focusing on a wide array of issues and individual circumstances. They also offer a synopsis of the housing needs of key U.S. groups including people with mental illness, people with developmental disabilities and people with physical disabilities, among others.

Opening Doors is a housing initiative and quarterly newsletter designed to provide information and technical assistance on affordable housing issues to people with disabilities, their families, advocates, and service providers across the United States.
