EDUCATION For over a decade the Northwest Fair Housing Alliance (NWFHA) has provided comprehensive fair housing training for property managers and landlords throughout Eastern and Central Washington. Our clients have included professional property management companies, housing authorities, professional associations, attorneys, and government officials. NWFHA staff is knowledgeable about fair housing issues that are currently ?on the radar screen?in Eastern and Central Washington and can tailor training programs to meet your needs.
ADVOCACY NWFHA assists people who have been discriminated against in housing because of race, color, national origin, disability, familial status (presence of children), marital status, religion, gender (sexual harassment or domestic violence may qualify), or sexual orientation with the investigation and filing of fair housing complaints with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Washington State Human Rights Commission (WSHRC). If you believe that you have experienced such discrimination, we may be able to assist you in talking with your housing provider or filing a complaint.
