This free webinar will examine the potential challenges survivors of human trafficking may face as they try to obtain or maintain safe and sustainable housing. Panelists will discuss how criminal records and other factors may impact a survivor’s ability to secure both public and private housing, as well as considerations that should factor in when assisting survivors with landlord/tenant disputes. Attorneys and advocates will also be provided with guidance on how to discuss housing issues with survivors and an overview of legal options available in such cases.
