HOPE Sues Eden Supportive Living & State of Illinois Over Unfair Disability Policies and Practices

Wed, Oct 16, 2013

Chicago, IL – Today HOPE Fair Housing Center (HOPE) announced a lawsuit against Eden Supportive Living Facilities (Eden) and the State of Illinois for unfair policies and practices against persons with mental health diagnoses.

“Millions of Americans have one or more diagnoses of mental illness, an estimated 26 percent of Americans ages 18 and older — about one in four adults — suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year” said Anne Houghtaling, Executive Director, HOPE Fair Housing Center in West Chicago, IL. “Eden improperly screens out potential residents based on the label of a diagnosis alone. This unfairly denies a basic right – housing – to many who would be great tenants.”
