MFHC Legal Director Speaks in Favor of Recovery Home

MFHC Legal Director, Ashley Grant, spoke in support of a group home at Tuesday's Holyoke City Council meeting, saying discrimination against group homes violates the Fair Housing Act, which protects people with disabilities, including people in recovery. She also mentioned research that shows that there is no decrease to surrounding property values with the introduction of a group home, and that group homes can be successfully integrated into the community.
