    Housing

    An advertisement, with a picture of a young woman with a thoughtful look on her face. The text reads: “The whole housing thing seems so complicated and scary that I was ready to give up on the idea of living on my own. After attending a fair housing workshop at ILRCSF, I had the information and confidence to get out there and start looking for my own apartment.” Tasha likes her new apartment and enjoys her independence. She’s a good tenant. She’s also a person with a disability.

    Dela’s kitchen is fully accessible, which enables her to prepare dinner for herself and her daughter.

    Housing Counseling and Advocacy provides individual housing information and guidance with a focus upon tenants’ rights, fair housing, and advocacy, in addition to assisting consumers in the application for emergency rental assistance funds. Available to consumers are several ILRCSF produced publications relative to housing and disabilities. Tenants and housing providers are invited to attend the fair housing training workshops, provide low-income housing information for distribution to other ILRCSF partners or participate in one of the monthly housing skills search sessions.

    Housing Workshops

    Housing Workshops cover laws that are applicable to tenants with disabilities, types of low-income housing and their eligibility criteria, and resources for conducting a housing search. All Housing Workshops are on Mondays at 1:30p.m. to 3:30p.m. Pre-registration is required. Learn more  about upcoming housing workshops.

    People who arrive late (after 1:30pm) will not be admitted and will need to reschedule.
