Mission Statement

The Toledo Fair Housing Center is a professional, non-profit, civil rights agency dedicated to the elimination of housing discrimination and to the expansion of neighborhood choice for all persons. It strives to ensure equal opportunities and access to housing, neighborhoods, public accommodations, lending and insurance. The Center provides education, advocacy and enforcement, and it helps to shape public policy.

Description

The Fair Housing Center was founded on the principles of community, tolerance and justice. It was the injustice of racial and economic discrimination that ignited The Women of the Old West End, The League of Women Voters and several other concerned citizens and community groups to establish an organization that would combat discriminatory housing practices. In 1975, the Center took its first steps toward fulfilling its mission of eliminating housing discrimination. The Center has carried out its founding principles by educating consumers and housing professionals, engaging in community development initiatives, investigating over 11,000 complaints and recovering more than $27.79 million to remedy discriminatory practices. For more than 36 years, the Center has demonstrated a talent for setting national precedents in the enforcement of fair housing laws, while expanding housing opportunities for millions of Americans.
