The Housing Rights Center (“HRC”) is the nation's largest nonprofit, civil-rights organization dedicated to promoting and securing fair housing. Our mission is to actively support and promote freedom of residence through education, advocacy and litigation, to the end that all persons have the opportunity to secure the housing they desire and can afford, without discrimination based on their race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, familial status, marital status, disability, genetic information, ancestry, age, source of income, or other characteristics protected by law.
Since 1968, HRC has identified and addressed the challenges of housing discrimination without interruption, and continues to expand and diversify its services and programs to meet the need and ever changing issue of fair housing. During the past year, HRC assisted over 17, 000 individuals and families throughout the Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
HRC provides a variety of free services and programs to residents within the Los Angeles and Ventura Counties including (1) housing discrimination investigation, (2) enforcement and impact litigation, (3) outreach and public education, and (4) landlord-tenant counseling.
