Watch this space for information on the federal Fair Housing Act and how the law affects people with disabilities.
In the following weeks and months, we will be including information on how to look for an apartment, how to get an accommodation, and where to go for help if you feel like you have been discriminated in housing. We will also host workshops on knowing your housing rights and self advocacy, and we'll announce the dates and times here.
Next housing workshop:
Wednesday, November 30, starts promptly at 10 a.m.
80-02 Kew Gardens Road, Suite 107. RSVP (646) 442-1520.
