BECAUSE OF HIS DISABILITY.
Sergio lost his leg and his hearing while serving our country overseas. Now back home, he was ready to
start a new chapter in his life. But when he found the perfect apartment, the landlord refused to make
a reasonable accommodation to allow his service dog in a “no pets” building. Then Sergio learned that
the Fair Housing Act protects people with disabilities. He contacted HUD and fi led a complaint. Today,
Sergio is feeling right at home.
