As the executive director of CNY Fair Housing in Syracuse, Sally Santangelo is  an expert on discrimination and affordable housing, the author of the comprehensive “Impediments to Fair Housing” report that was published late last year and that became the data foundation for the MyHousingMatters.com project.

Buffalo-bred Greg Ayers remembers standing with his sisters at age 13 and watching construction workers build his new home.

Ayers’ parents had decided this development was a good place to start fresh. They previously lived in a home Ayers’ grandparents owned and knew it was time for a change.

The second home was where he made many of his fondest childhood memories.

“That was the life,” he says.

But just four short years later, his home had fallen apart. Today, 20 years later, he’s put it all back together, helping others find homes of their own, sometimes in the face of discrimination and other unfair practices.
