Housing Options – The Nurturing Network provides a number of services and housing is one of them. They will support your decision to stay where you are now living or they will assist you with moving to a new location or town.
Public housing provides decent and safe living arrangements for eligible low-income families. Public Housing comes in all sizes and types. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers aid to local housing thereby bringing the rent to a price that occupants can afford.

The Fair Housing Act – Covers most, but not all, housing. Fair Housing makes it illegal to discriminate in housing-related activities due to family status, race, national origin, gender, religion and handicap. Family status includes women who are pregnant, people with child and people in the process of obtaining legal custody of a child. Housing discrimination could include:
- Refusing to rent or sell to you.
- Requiring different terms and conditions for renting or selling, such as a higher deposit or additional credit checks.
- Requiring that you or your family live in a certain area of the complex or limiting the use of the facilities.
