ARIZONA FAIR HOUSING CENTER WELCOMES YOU

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

 

THE ARIZONA FAIR HOUSING CENTER AT A GLANCE

A Distinct Identity

In Arizona, Native American, Black, Asian and Latino populations have continued to experience discrimination in housing over the last thirty years. Particularly with the tripling of Latino population, evidence of housing discrimination has become more focused on national origin. According to US Census records, Arizona’s Latino population increased to 30 percent of the overall population between 2000-2012.
AFHC formed three decades ago in response to the need for fair housing enforcement and housing education for protected classes who have been highly segregated and underserved by housing providers. Since that time, AFHC has helped more than 9,000 Arizona residents combat illegal and discriminatory housing practices.

WHAT WE DO

Making A Difference

AZFHC is dedicated to eliminating housing discrimination and assisting victims of housing discrimination in exercising their rights. The Fair Housing Act protects people from adverse treatment in any housing transaction based upon seven protected classes: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and familial status. 

 

The mission of The Arizona Fair Housing Center is to strengthen communities and to ensure equal access to fair housing in Metro Phoenix and surrounding areas through training, education, enforcement, and advocacy.

 

Contact AZFHC today if you feel as though you have been a victim of housing discrimination. Examples include:

  • Being told you cannot live somewhere because you have children

  • Being denied housing because of a disability

  • Being forced to pay a pet deposit for a service animal

  • Feeling as though you were treated differently while seeking housing due to your race or national origin

  • Being sexually harassed by a landlord or neighbor
