A woman smiling in a wheelchair. Her quote is "I no longer could afford a caregiver because I couldn't afford the street parking any longer. The Fair Housing Center was informed about my situation and immediately followed up with a letter to the management of my apartment. The following day I was able to have my caregiver back, and able to see me." Dani Laurion

Smiling white doctor standing near a ramp at a house. The quote reads: “After 3-months of meeting in-person, sending a certified letter, and leaving voice messages I was still not able to set-up communication with the housing facility for a reasonable accommodation (ramp);  without the ramp this individual was not able to leave their home. I then called the Fair Housing Center to assist in setting up  a dialog with the housing facility.  Within a week we were given permission to proceed with a ramp placement. Thank you FHC for being there to support individuals and their caregivers'' Jon, Physical Therapist
