Western North Carolina 

The Institute works nationally and internationally, but also at the local and regional level. We are pleased to be working with a number of collaborators in western North Carolina to improve the housing options for people with disabilities and older adults.


Here are some western North Carolina resources that may help you find appropriate housing, remodel your house, build a new home or downsize. We will be continually adding resources here. Please let us know of any that we should list.


The Ronald L. Mace Universal Design Institute is a non-profit organization based in North Carolina dedicated to promoting the concept and practice of accessible and universal design. The Institute's work manifests the belief that all new environments and products, to the greatest extent possible, should and can be usable by everyone regardless of age, ability, or circumstance.


The Institute's sister initiative, Better Living Design is changing the way homes and home products are designed, built and remodeled to better meet the needs of everyone at every life stage.
