Your Community is Important.. Place Matters.
CFH has established an effective and comprehensive outreach and public education program designed to raise awareness of the fair housing laws that protect individuals, often in traditionally underserved communities, against housing discrimination. The Outreach Department develops and distributes educational literature and resources that describe ways to prevent housing injustices and the applicable laws that protect against discrimination. The materials are made available free to the public in various languages.
The Outreach Department also presents free fair housing law workshops for landlords, tenants, nonprofit organizations and government employees. The workshops include an overview of the state and federal fair housing laws, as well as basic landlord-tenant rights and responsibilities.
Since 2011, the outreach department has helped to coordinate the Justice Summit, a regional event, that brings together civil rights advocates, social service providers, housing industry professionals and members of the concerned public to discuss fair housing issues and develop strategies to combat discrimination.
