Where can I find listings for wheelchair-accessible apartments in North Oakland? Sites, organizations, amenable landlords, types of buildings that are easy to make accessible...?

I'm moving to Oakland from the Midwest in August, and I'm looking for a wheelchair-accessible apartment--a 1br, maybe a studio, in Temescal, Rockridge, or elsewhere in North Oakland. Preferably around $1300, maybe up to $1600.
Unfortunately, I've had very little luck finding anything on craigslist or the usual methods. Moving from across the country makes things even more challenging, since I can't scope places out in advance.
I usually don't use my wheelchair in my house, so it doesn't have to meet strict ADA regulations. But I do have to be able to get my chair in and out of the house.
