South Suburban Housing Center is dedicated to the promotion of a unitary housing market that: eliminates discrimination based on race or other protected group status; and fosters stable, long-term diverse communities. To achieve this purpose, SSHC operates a host of Fair Housing Enforcement, Housing Counseling and Education and Outreach programs throughout the communities in its primary south Chicago metropolitan service area, as well as other underserved areas throughout Illinois and northwest Indiana that seek our assistance.
SSHC fights housing discrimination by promoting equal housing, lending and home insurance opportunities for all people, through education, research, outreach, enforcement, training and advocacy. Specifically, SSHC engages in activities designed to encourage fair housing practices through nationwide educational efforts; assists persons who believe they have been victims of housing discrimination; provides counseling and referral services for persons seeking housing; identifies barriers to fair housing that counteract discriminatory housing practices; works with elected and governmental representatives to protect and improve fair housing laws; and takes all appropriate and necessary action to ensure that fair housing laws are properly, fairly and affirmatively enforced throughout Chicago’s South and Southwest Suburbs.
