MSAA owns and operates five barrier-free apartment complexes which provide accessible, affordable housing for physically disabled adults in an independent living environment. Each of the 125 one-bedroom or efficiency apartments is designed to meet the needs of persons with MS or other physical disabilities. [Amenities include step-less entries, widened doorways for wheelchair passage, roll-under kitchen sinks and counters, lowered light switches, large roll-in showers with grab bars and a pull down bench, air conditioning , and other features to ensure a safe and comfortable living environment. ] The apartments are also very affordable as rent is subsidized through the government. As a result, rental payments are 30% of tenant's adjusted gross income.
Each complex includes a laundry room, keypad-entry security system, amply handicapped parking, and a community room for group activities such as game nights, and meetings. MSAA also provides on-site social services at each complex and transportation where available.
