Community Education

Our primary mission is to eliminate housing discrimination in Orange County. In an effort to achieve this goal, we provide counseling and training regarding fair housing laws to landlords, tenants, sellers, buyers, real estate professionals and others in the housing industry.

Other activities include:

•  Attendance at public meetings

•  Community events

•  Educational seminars

•  A Fair Housing poster contest for school children (when funding permits).

In addition, the Fair Housing Council provides community outreach presentations to organizations and at events to inform individuals about fair housing laws, landlord/tenant issues, information about buying a home, seniors wanting information about reverse mortgages, and homeowners in mortgage default who need information to prevent and avoid foreclosure.

Please check our calendar of upcoming events in the news section if you would like more information about our Housing Counseling program.
