The struggle against discrimination in housing (called “Fair Housing”) had been CSA’s concern for over 40 years. The term “Fair Housing” denotes a legal framework that is an important part of our fair housing civil rights history.
Fair housing exists in a community when individuals of similar income have the same range of housing choices regardless of race or color, ancestry or national origin, religion, gender, disability, marital or familial status, sexual orientation, or source of income.
Discrimination in housing remains a continual problem for African-Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and immigrants; gay and lesbian couples; single mothers with children; and the disabled (among others).
Sometimes tenants and landlords have serious conflicts that do not arise from discrimination but must be addressed never-the-less. Sometimes roommates or neighbors have conflicts that can lead to violence or other serious problems. Call our office if you are having a problem with your landlord, tenant, roommate, or neighbor.
