Group Homes provides an overview of the legal obligation to provide fair housing for people with disabilities and the policy rationales standing behind those obligations. It is an invaluable resource for those interested in the history, law, planning policy, and political strategy of developing housing for people with disabilities.
Resting on two significant assumptions regarding law and history relating to people with disabilities – fair housing is right for all, including those with disabilities, and individuals with disabilities have been subjected to serious discrimination in many realms, particularly housing – it is the intention of this book to ensure that local governments make the appropriate regulations and accommodations to provide equal and fair housing for people with disabilities, while also respecting the rights and legitimate desires of other residents whose properties or lives may be impacted in some meaningful way by a new housing development in the community.
This book guides you over a wide range of credible information – from the practical background of the population of people with disabilities, through the law relating to housing for people with disabilities, and into the planning and regulatory approaches that can and should be applied to group homes.
