Accessible Rentals

A Word About Accessible Rentals

I get calls from time to time about accessible and affordable rentals in our area. Unfortunately, there is not a good central place for researching rentals that have accessible features. Below are some options that might help.

You could try an Independent Living Center in you area:

  • Center for Independent Living – Berkeley, www.cilberkeley.org 510-841-4776
  • Center for Independent Living – Oakland, www.cilberkeley.org 510-763-9999
  • Community Resources for independent Living (Hayward), www.cril-online.org 510-881-5743
  • Independent Living Resource (Contra Costa & Solano Counties), 925-363-3394
  • Silicon Valley Independent Living Center (San Jose), www.svilc.org 408-894-9041
