A discussion with Micaela Connery, Co-Founder of The Kelsey, a non-profit that centers on the lived experience of people with disabilities and the creation of inclusive and affordable multifamily housing. Garnering the attention and support of organizations like Google and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, The Kelsey is currently advancing a housing pipeline worth over $180 million—beginning with more than 240 affordable, accessible homes in one of the nation’s most challenging housing markets, California. Inspired by her cousin and Co-Founder Kelsey, Micaela started The Kelsey to bring a disability-forward mindset to everyday practices of housing design, in development and operations. In partnership with community leaders, investors, developers, and policymakers, the team has created a nationally scalable blueprint for success.
