The Shriver Center works to protect housing rights and expand housing opportunities for individuals and families with low income.
- We partner with tenants with low income, tenant associations, community organizations, and public entities to preserve affordable housing and promote fair housing.
- We advocate for policies that eliminate barriers to housing for people with criminal records.
- We oppose “crimefree” rental property ordinances that punish victims of domestic violence and persons with disabilities for seeking assistance from the police.
- We advocate for policies that protect the health and safety of survivors of domestic or sexual violence who live in rental or subsidized housing.
