Fair Housing: NHS of South Buffalo has supported Fair Housing since its inception in 1989. The mission of NHS of South Buffalo has always been committed to working for equal opportunity in housing, as is another local nonprofit, HOME (Housing Opportunities Made Equal). Perhaps their mission statement says it best:
“... to promote the value of diversity and to ensure the people of Western New York an equal opportunity to live in the housing and in the community of their choice through education, advocacy, enforcement of fair housing laws, and the creation of housing opportunities."
The importance of fair housing policies has also been an education focal point in our First-Time Homebuyer Class, as well as tenant rights and responsibilities when shopping for a home. Check out our Educational Workshops, as well as our blog post on Fair Housing Month for more information.
