Lack of affordable housing difficult for those with disabilities

Monica Spann, who has multiple sclerosis, helps her son Brandon Joyner with homework in their new home in Capitol Heights, Md.
Monica Spann's multiple sclerosis makes it impossible for her to work or climb stairs. However, there is little left of her $2,010 Social Security check after paying for the cheapest Washington, D.C.-area apartment without steps she can afford. "I never even thought that would be a concern because there are a lot of people living on Social Security or disability," Spann said. "I see this is nothing someone can live off of."
