Foundation Launches Universal Homes Initiative

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation launched a new initiative called “Accessibility is Beautiful”,  supported by CHUBB. This innovative accessibility initiative includes a YouTube video miniseries and Universal Design “Look Book” will feature the homes of disability advocates Pat Wright and Deb Zeyen, Karen Braitmayer, Leslie Haynes and Randy Earle, designed by architects Carol Sundstrom of Rom Architecture Studio, and Cathi House of House + House Architects.

The YouTube miniseries, developed by the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, follows designer and HGTV host, John Gidding, as he explores a range of incredible architect-designed homes that follow the principles of Universal Design. Whether built in a remote seaside town, a gritty downtown location, or the beautiful suburbs of Seattle, these stunning homes meet the requirements of their owners’ specific needs, and are truly accessible for everyone. The video miniseries showcases how these residences are both beautiful works of architecture, as well as well-functioning homes.

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation also developed a 40+ page “Look Book” accompanying the YouTube video miniseries, developed by experts in Universal Design.
