I'm looking for a shorter way to state the phrase "Helping People with Disabilities Live at Home", it's 45 characters, which is too long for a Facebook tagline.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    This site isn't a crowd-source-your-marketing service. – curiousdannii May 8 '15 at 13:41
  • It's not a marketing service that I work for; it's a non-profit. – leeand00 May 8 '15 at 13:51
  • @curiousdannii Seriously, did you read the phrase? – leeand00 May 8 '15 at 13:57

Helping People with Disabilities Stay Home

That is 42 characters including spaces. I personally would not change "People with Disabilities" to "the Disabled". It may be proper grammar, but people generally do not like to be classified into a subgroup of humanity. People with Disabilities is much more human than the disabled.

    This just your opinion, people with disabilities very often call themselves the Disabled as a group. There are plenty of associations, sites, societies, etc: regattaforthedisabled.org, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riding_for_the_Disabled_Association – alx May 8 '15 at 15:43
  • Yes, I intended it to be clear that was my opinion when I said "personally". I'm sorry if that was not clear. – Maguijo May 8 '15 at 15:50

    "Stay Home" there, instead of "Live at Home", conveys an entirely different meaning... as if we want them all to stay home so that they stay out of our public places and we don't have to deal with them. – andi May 8 '15 at 17:50

Helping the Disabled Live at Home

The + Adjective is a grammatical construct to define a group of people. This usage is referred to in the article usage section of grammar books as in the following example:

Usage of the definite article 'the' on British Council

With adjectives like rich, poor, elderly, unemployed to talk about groups of people:

  • Life can be very hard for the poor.
  • I think the rich should pay more taxes.
  • She works for a group to help the disabled.

It may seem a bit too PC, but Helping the Otherly-Abled Live At Home gets there in under 40 characters

  • Note to everyone: please don't ever say anything like this to describe people with disabilities. – andi May 8 '15 at 17:48
