Who We Are

Bay Area Housing Corporation primarily serves people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families.

A “developmental disability” is a condition that originates before an individual reaches age 18; continues, or can be expected to continue indefinitely; and constitutes a substantial impairment in three or more areas of major life activity. Areas of major life activity include self-care, receptive and expressive language, learning, mobility, self-direction, capacity for independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. Substantial impairment reflects the person’s need for a combination of special, interdisciplinary, or generic support services.
