SCLAD’s housing initiatives seek to make available barrier-free housing that is affordable to individuals with disabilities and their families. SCLAD is a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), certified as such by the City of Hialeah, Miami-Dade County and the Florida Housing Finance Corporation.
As of January 2014, SCLAD had developed 76 barrier-free units, sold twenty four condominiums and was actively managing fifty two rental units.
Our first barrier-free, affordable housing project, Park Place, located in Hialeah, Florida was inaugurated in February 1998. It is a 34 unit, one and two bedroom rental complex. Additionally, SCLAD keeps up to date on information regarding the availability of local accessible housing in order to facilitate customer access. SCLAD works with housing developers to assist them in complying with Fair Housing Act, accessibility requirements. This helps to insure that housing projects are constructed barrier-free and with the number of accessible units required by law. It also provides information on accessibility requirements to individuals and to public and private entities that wish to make their premises accessible. SCLAD, through this program, generates affordable, barrier-free housing and housing opportunities for low and moderate income families and individuals, placing emphasis on those with physical disabilities (including vision and hearing impairments), especially wheelchair uses.
