The Fair Housing Rights Center in Southeastern Pennsylvania is a determined advocate for the establishment of equity and maintenance of equal access to housing opportunities for everyone.
We work with housing providers, management companies, and municipal offices to comply with fair housing laws, guidance, regulations, and rules which govern equal housing opportunities and the best practices of property management which lead to strong, safe, and stable communities.
Tenants with disabilities are a specific, vulnerable population that are protected under the federal Fair Housing Act, Title VI, and the general purview of the 1968 Civil Rights Act, as amended, and other related laws. The FHRC supports tenants with disabilities as they are forced to navigate difficult housing situations.
The federal Fair Housing Rights Act is Title VIII of the 1968 Civil Rights Act, as amended, and serves to protect every individual from discrimination within the public housing industry.
The Fair Housing Act of 1968 has two primary goals. The first is to combat housing discrimination across the country and the second is to promote diverse, inclusive communities for all people.
In memory of George Lloyd, Breonna Taylor, and other victims of unconscious and conscious biases by law enforcement who are sent to over-police in racially segregated communities that were redlined, the Fair Housing Rights Center in Southeastern Pennsylvania (FHRC) stands in solidarity with the protesters who are demanding racial, social, and economic justice.
To address structural racism that impacts quality of life by showing up as racial residential segregation, health disparities, educational achievement gap, and racial wealth gap, we invite good corporate citizens to support FHRC’s work that produces positive results such as: Preventing untimely episodes of homelessness, displacement, and institutionalization; Resolving life-threatening health and housing crises; and planning educational forums that address the intersection between fair housing and social problems including: code enforcement, re-entry, hoarding, and mental health.
