March 28, 2017 - The March issue of the Buzz features Legal Aid’s Fair Housing Project, which was established in 1999 with a grant from the City of West Palm Beach to ensure that no resident of the city was denied housing based on race, color, national origin, gender, disability, marital status, age, and/or sexual orientation.
In 2006, under the leadership of Supervising Attorney Tequisha Myles, the Project has expanded its services to provide community outreach, advocacy, and enforcement activities to compliment its direct client representation. This expansion was made possible through multi-year grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and funding from the cities of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach. Additionally, increased funding has enabled the project to provide fair housing assistance to residents on the Treasure Coast.
Tequisha and her staff are devoted to protecting individual rights to fair housing throughout Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast.
