The above link is an interesting read although it does not offer me much hope. Scroll down to section 2 - frequently asked questions regarding "dangerous persons be excluded from residing in community residences".

It appears that "dangerous persons" can be excluded from these homes. Also, it looks like these homes that are protected from all of these fair housing laws are made up of people with disabilities and brain injuries.
That is not what NJ Mentor is saying they are putting in the home on Valleybrook. We have to find out if "behavioral" problems are considered a disability under the law.

PostSubject: Defenition of Disabled   Thu Aug 23, 2007 2:51 am

The FHAA adopted the definition of "handicap" used in section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. [ See 29 U.S.C. 701-794.] "Handicap" with respect to a person means that such person has a "physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities; a record of such an impairment; or is regarded as having such an impairment." [ 24 C.F.R. 100.201; see also 42 U.C.S. 3602 (h).] "Major life activities" include caring for oneself, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working. Thus, any person suffering from a physiological, neurological or mental disorder or disability of any type will be protected by the Act. This broad application is further expanded by including individuals who are perceived to be handicapped either by appearance or because of a history of some impairment covered by the Act.
