Announced in June, The Fair Housing Center and the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority have teamed up to help those living with disabilities. The new collaboration sparks an easier way for residents who need special accommodations to make their requests known and to have them fulfilled efficiently. By law, those with requests who require any assistance or need a reasonable accommodation, such as an accessibility ramp, handle bars, or allowing an assistance animal in the home, must have those requests met. For any modification requests or complaints, call Legal Aid of Western Ohio at 419-724-0460.
