Housing Rights: Disability, Race, National Origin and Language

Neighbors, Homeowners Associations (HOA), Landlords, and Realtors often target people with disabilities for things they ignore when anyone else does them. We consistently see people with disabilities targeted because of their disability and their race, national origin, or the language they speak.

What can this look like?

If you need assistance with any of the issues described above, please call our intake line at 1-800-252-9108, apply online at intake.DRTx.org or email housing@drtx.org with your name, phone number, address, and a description of the issue.
