Fair Housing 2021: What Counselors Need to Know: Fair Housing in Disaster Recovery
November 17, 2021 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST
Fair Housing considerations can be made before a disaster happens, ensuring all protected class groups are considered, especially those typically marginalized. When disasters happen, individuals and families can be displaced and in need of temporary housing. The Fair Housing Act (FHA) includes protections against discrimination for people who need temporary housing and shelter in the aftermath of a disaster. This session of the Fair Housing 2021: What Counselors Need to Know Conference, discussed what you need to know to protect the rights of your clients before and when a disaster strikes.
