The “Rights Stuff” on Fair Housing for Coloradans with Disabilities

September 4, 2007

Denver, CO – More Coloradans with disabilities are getting wise to their rights when it comes to housing. Deborah Cameron, with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, says calls to the group's "Fair Housing Hotline" this year have increased, from people concerned about discrimination, and the rights of those with disabilities.

"We've been trying to raise awareness in the larger community about the Fair Housing Act, and we think this means people are starting to know about their rights."

She says one of the most frequent questions is about how the so-called "reasonable accommodation" process works under the Fair Housing Act.

"For example, if they have a disability and need a parking space, they can get a note from their doctor or from their service provider verifying they need 'reasonable accommodation.' This would help them obtain a designated parking spot that only they can park in, and that's close to their unit."

When people with disabilities don't understand their rights, Cameron adds, it can make life much more difficult.

"They could have a serious problem even finding housing, or being able to stay in housing, so maintaining these rights are very important."

The Coalition reports landlords also have been calling to learn more about the Fair Housing guidelines. More information is available online, at http://learnfairhousing.org.
