OUR WORK

 

SWFHC is dedicated to eliminating housing discrimination and assisting victims of housing discrimination in exercising their rights. The Fair Housing Act protects people from adverse treatment in any housing transaction based upon seven protected classes: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and familial status. Depending on where you reside in Arizona, you may also be protected on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, ancestry, age, and marital status.
