Strategies and formal agreements developed by
Guelph Services for the Autistic in its role as housing trust
Edited by Elizabeth & Gerald Bloomfield, 2008

Guelph Services for the Autistic (GSA) has functioned as a housing trust since 1997. Its mission is to help adults with autism to live in their own homes with dignity and safety, supported by family and friends--and with self-directed planning, individualized funding, and infrastructure services as needed.

Other families and organizations are interested in following the path pioneered by GSA, so we have compiled this 120-page guide to the various agreements and procedures, with some explanatory text.
