Members of our Client Services staff assist people who believe they may be victims of illegal housing discrimination. HOME helps our clients gather evidence to support a claim of illegal discrimination and discuss enforcement options. These options could include problem-solving or mediation with HOME personnel, filing of an administrative complaint with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or legal action through a referral to a cooperating attorney.

Housing discrimination can occur in any transaction whether renting or buying a home, negotiating with a lender, or shopping for insurance. Discrimination is not just about race or color. It also is illegal to discriminate in housing based on religion, national origin, gender, disability, or because children are members of the household. Learn more about protected classes under the Fair Housing Act here.

**HOME does not employ lawyers, so if you have been served with a legal notice, are considering legal action, or otherwise need legal advice, we strongly advise you to contact an attorney immediately.
