Creating Opportunity. Ending Discrimination.
Housing discrimination is real and it’s happening right now, though you may not see it. According to government estimates, more than four million instances of housing discrimination occur each year, though only 1% of these are reported. Today, housing discrimination is rarely visible or blatant, and would persist indefinitely and unnoticed were it not for the efforts of organizations like HOPE Fair Housing Center.
Established in 1968, HOPE Fair Housing Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating housing discrimination and segregation because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, familial status, or any other characteristics protected under state or local laws. HOPE shines a light on housing discrimination and promotes the civil rights that protect all of us from discrimination.
