A roommate arrangement that is at once ordinary and extraordinary
By creating two new housing opportunities in D.C., Best Buddies is fostering more than friendships between people with and without disabilities
Mae Moskin is about to tell me about a conflict she had with her roommate.
I don’t know what I expect the 26-year-old law school student to say, but I find myself hoping to hear something enlightening, something about how two very different people learned to traverse newly created ground. Moskin is, after all, participating in an innovative housing program in which people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities share apartments.
