Our vision is to eliminate all forms of illegal discrimination related to housing. We do this through education (free classes) and enforcement. We offer free help to everyone who is experiencing unlawful housing discrimination. The Southwest Fair Housing Council (SWFHC) was established in 1986. We are a non-profit 501c3 fair housing organization based in Tucson, Arizona, which provides services throughout Arizona. SWFHC advocates for and facilitates the enforcement of the Federal and State Fair Housing Acts in addition to the Non-discriminatory Ordinances of different Arizonan municipalities. Free, remote classes are offered online so everyone can learn about their rights and responsibilities in fair housing. Questions such as can I have my emotional support animal, a monkey, in my apartment? Can they have a policy that states we don't rent to any felons? These and many more get answered in our free online, real-time classes.
