Do you (or will you) need safe housing?
Until the end of November 2019, Health Risk Navigation Inc. (HRNI) is conducting a much needed (yet simple) survey of the housing needs of the chemically injured in order to have quantitative data to show housing providers, communities, policy, and decision makers, funders, and other relevant parties.
This kind of data doesn’t exist currently, so even though safe housing is our core need, there are no official documents that anyone can easily point to.
More details are available on their FAQ page:
Some of you may have already done the 1st edition of this survey in June of 2019, when it originally came out. Thank you! Even though the survey now has a different format, those responses are not lost.
You don’t have to do the revised one, but it would be helpful if you could spend the 10-15 minutes to do so… just mention that you completed the original on the last page where people are asked to share any additional comments.
The questions of the initial survey and the current survey are identical, except that the current survey now has four new questions at the beginning that seek consent of the respondents to save and share info (largely due to EU privacy laws).
Every question also gives an explanation as to why the data is requested. Additionally, every question (except the consent questions) now gives us the choice to answer “Prefer Not To Say”.

I’ve created a Research PAGE with links and downloads to a variety of scientific offerings and resources, especially for those who want more published “proof” that MCS is “real”.
May your friends, family and medical professionals be reassured by the evidence.

Enlightening (in a relative way)…
Before watching, it might be helpful to get really grounded and plan how you will deal with the emotions that come up.
These interviews and the roundtable discussion were filmed in Sante Fe, New Mexico in 1995. Parts of this piece are in the full documentary, Homesick: Living With Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.
