Housing Rights Center

The Housing Rights Center (HRC) is the nation's largest non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to securing and promoting Fair Housing. HRC was founded in 1968, the same year Congress passed the Fair Housing Act. HRC's mission is "to actively support and promote freedom of residence through education, advocacy, and litigation, to the end that all persons have the opportunity to secure the housing they desire and can afford, without regard to their race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, familial status, marital status, disability, ancestry, age, source of income or other characteristics protected by law."


HRC serves Los Angeles & Ventura County. Its services include:

  • Landlord/tenant counseling

  • Outreach

  • Education

  • Discrimination investigation

  • Monthly Rental Listings "Project Place"

HRC's housing counseling is available to answer questions about tenant-landlord rights and obligations, including security deposits, evictions, repairs, rent increases, harassment, and more. In addition, HRC's Case Analysts investigate allegations of housing discrimination and help victims of discrimination enforce their Fair Housing rights. It can also help tenants with disabilities assert their right to request accommodations or modifications in their homes.


HRC's community events help educate individuals on how fair housing laws protect people, how to spot illegal practices, and tenant-landlord rights.


Project Place, HRC's last resource, helps individuals locate opportunities for affordable housing, senior housing, and veteran housing throughout Los Angeles and Ventura County.
