Veteran Resource Podcast
About This Show
Veteran Resource Podcast was created to introduce veterans to Veteran Service Organizations. There are literally thousands of VSO’s out there, each with a different mission. The one thing they have in common is that they want to help veterans in their own way. Some might help financially, some might help emotionally, some might help with homelessness, and others might help by providing the opportunity for veterans to serve their community and help others in need. Each week Jeremy will interview a different VSO to find out what their mission is, what projects they have going on, what challenges they face, and the type of veteran that is in their wheelhouse. We interview organizations like Team RWB, The Mission Continues, Team Rubicon, Warrior Hike, Veteran Artist Program, Student Veterans of America, etc. With thousands of VSO’s there has to be something out there for every veteran.

095 - Patrick Coleman - Housing Discrimination Against Veterans
Patrick Coleman is the President of Fair Housing Advocates, Inc. Many of our US Military Veterans are being subjected to housing discrimination on the basis of their Disability when their Service Dog or Emotional Support Animal is either prohibited, or subjected to "pet rules." Housing discrimination goes unnoticed every day and is usually misidentified as landlord & tenant law violations instead of the serious civil rights violations they really are. In fact, the Fair Housing Act provides any victim of housing discrimination a very aggressive process to establish and defend their housing civil rights. Fair Housing Advocates has noticed housing discrimination is going unchecked within our veteran and active duty military, law enforcement, and first responder community- our “Patriots.” 5 Simple Signs of Housing Discrimination: Your Service Dog is prohibited by your Landlord because of its Breed, Size, or Weight You are charged a Pet Fee, Pet Deposit, or Pet Rent for your Service Dog or Emotional Support Animal Your Service Dog is prohibited from using common areas; pool area, fitness center, clubhouse etc. You are forced to live on a designated floor or unit because you are Disabled or have Children You are discouraged from renting or applying because you have Children Complete our Housing Discrimination Questionnaire to learn if you are a victim of housing discrimination.
