Housing Development

 

Vadis purchases and rehabs houses to rent to low-income individuals with disabilities. Houses are adapted to meet the accommodation needs of its tenants. Houses are sought in areas with access to transportation, services and community hubs. Having an affordable quality home allows individuals to be active in their communities, gain independence and get to and from work easily. Everyone deserves a home that meets their needs.
