The mission of the Fair Housing Council of Orange County is to eliminate housing discrimination and achieve equal access to housing for all similarly qualified persons through the support of federal, State and local fair housing laws.
Founded in 1965, the Fair Housing Council of Orange County is a private non-profit corporation governed by a volunteer board of directors and an operating member of the National Fair Housing Alliance.
Through comprehensive community education, individual counseling, mediation, and low-cost advocacy, the Fair Housing Council works to eliminate housing discrimination and guarantee the rights of all people to freely chose housing, in their desired area, for which they are objectively qualified. Presently, the Fair Housing Council resolves over 80% of the disputes that come before the agency, saving Orange County taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in court time, along with helping thousands of individuals keep, or gain access to, a safe, decent and sanitary home.
The Fair Housing Council's evidence of fair housing violations has been successfully used by the U.S. Departments of Justice and HUD, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and private attorneys in federal and state administrative and court proceedings. In addition, under leadership of the current management, the Fair Housing Council has prevailed in all fair housing cases in which the organization was a named party.
