Fair Housing Is Your Right
Everyone who lives in America is protected from discrimination in housing, lending, home appraisal, insurance, and accessibility. Fair housing means you may freely choose a place to live without regard to your race, color, religion, sex, national origin or because you are disabled or have children in your family.
Where we live affects how others view us and how we view ourselves. In our society, housing is connected to many critical aspects of life, it contributes to our feeling of success or failure. Where we live determines many things: what kind of education our children will have; what kinds of professional and social associations we will have in our community; what kinds of physical danger we will be exposed to; what kinds of values and expectations will be opened up to us; and what kinds of job opportunities will be nearby.
How Central Ohio Fair Housing Association Can Help
The Central Ohio Fair Housing Association (COFHA) is here to help you if you encounter discrimination.
When Appropriate COFHA Can:
COFHA does not charge victims of housing discrimination for its investigative services. Currently we are operating with a limited budget, and therefore we may not be able to assist everyone who contacts our office.
In addition to Enforcement and Advocacy programs, the Central Ohio Fair Housing Association:
Conducts Training Programs for lending institutions, real estate and rental management companies.
Conduct Outreach and Education Programs for individuals, community and/or civic groups and youth organizations.
