HOUSING DISCRIMINATION Your Home Should be Your Haven
The world is a hard place. Your home should be a secure place and your refuge. Sadly, too many people with disabilities suffer housing discrimination because of ignorance or outright prejudice on the landlords, Public Housing Authorities and Homeowners Associations. Disability discrimination in housing can take many forms. Examples include refusing to maintain an elevator in good operating condition, an overly strict “no pets” policy that screens out service or companion animals or the unreasonable refusal of a landlord to modify practices and policies to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities.
