Through a collaborative effort, the Jefferson Parish Community Development Department and the Jefferson Parish Human Services Authority offers the Home Of My Own program to individuals with developmental disabilities. The Home of My Own program was created to assist individuals with developmental disabilities in becoming homeowners. The program also helps individuals to develop support plans to maintain their homes. The Jefferson Parish Community Development Department also offers a Home Modification program. This program provides individuals with disabilities grants of up to $7, 500 to make handicapped accessible home modifications such as ramps, walk-in showers, grab bars and widening doorways. For more information about these programs and other programs offered by the Jefferson Parish Community Development Department, call (504) 736-6262.
