When I applied for a home mortgage loan after having a baby, the lender told me they couldn’t use my income because I was on maternity leave. I called the Center and they went right to work. I was able to purchase the home of my dreams for my family.
Creating Inclusive Communities of Opportunity
Fair housing ensures that more people have access to quality schools, good jobs, and other key services that help them realize their potential and strengthen our community. By promoting diversity, fair housing also enhances the fabric of our neighborhoods.
That is why The Fair Housing Center was founded in 1975: to help unlock the doors of opportunity for our community. The Center is a national leader in efforts to eliminate housing discrimination and enforce fair housing laws. Its work helps ensure every person’s access to safe and affordable housing regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, sexual orientation, or military status.
