Housing discrimination has a long history in the United States, and it is still a problem today. Marginalized groups of people all over the country have difficulty finding affordable and well-maintained housing because of their socio-economic status, race, or even because of disabilities and diseases beyond their control. This is an issue that social workers have taken to heart for decades. Many social workers will work with clients for whom fair housing is an issue, and it can be a tough situation since the laws and policies governing housing can vary so greatly in different cities and states.

These websites offer several perspectives on the housing issue. The sites are not being ranked here, and since the nature of their content and audience varies widely. Some are more oriented towards families who need help getting housed, and others cater to social workers, lawyers and activists who want to get to the root of the fair housing problem and change the system for the better.

    While there are local and national laws governing housing policy that are aimed at reducing discrimination, it can be very difficult to enforce them, and even more difficult to change the habits and attitudes of the community. These sites cover every angle of housing law, policy, and advocacy.
