Finding affordable, accessible housing can be one of the biggest challenges faced by persons with disabilities. The rent at many apartments is out of reach for many persons with disabilities. While subsidies aren’t easy to come by, we work with you to get the best rental assistance available. At Stavros, we provide the resources and assistance people need to find housing that works for them. We keep regularly updated lists of accessible apartments throughout Massachusetts. We also offer monthly workshops in the basic how-tos of finding the right apartment.

Stavros Housing Services provides information on accessible, subsidized and market rate housing in western Massachusetts. Stavros sends lists of housing opportunities and related material to consumers interested in living in western Massachusetts. In addition to available housing, Stavros also provides information about modifications and financing possibilities. We also hold housing trainings frequently.

View our Events Calendar to see when our next Housing and Funding workshops are being held. 

Accommodations and Discrimination

Lots of apartments could work very well with a few changes. We help YOU make requests to landlords for reasonable accommodations, and we also work closely with attorneys to protect persons with disabilities from discrimination. You may also make your own request for housing accomodations by using our Housing Accommodations Fact Sheet

Problems and Evictions

Our experienced advocates work with disabled tenants to resolve disputes with landlords and offer assistance in the face of evictions.

Home Modifications

For many elders and persons with disabilities, adding new features to bathrooms or kitchens or adding an outdoor ramp can make the difference between dependence and independence. We offer education and assistance for persons seeking financing for such improvements. Please view our Home Sweet Home section.
