The Central Alabama Fair Housing Center works to increase public awareness of fair housing rights and to educate housing professionals about their responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act. CAFHC’s education and outreach efforts are essential in eliminating housing discrimination. Through our education and outreach efforts people are informed of their fair housing rights and are empowered to exercise them.
The Central Alabama Fair Housing Center (CAFHC) operates a fair housing testing program to monitor housing industry practices and to collect valuable evidence of housing discrimination. Fair housing “testing” is an investigative tool used by fair housing centers throughout the country. The process is similar to that used by “mystery shoppers” in the retail market. Fair housing centers train community members to pose as people seeking to rent an apartment, buy a home, obtain a home loan, or purchase home insurance. CAFHC operates the only fair housing testing program in central Alabama.
