Fair Housing Center Of Northern Alabama

Fair Housing Center Of Northern Alabama The office of Fair Housing Center of Northern Alabama received recognition from the State of Alabama, City of Birmingham, City of Bessemer, City of Hoover.

The Greater Birmingham Fair Housing Center (GBFHC) was incorporated in the early 1980′s but lacked financial support from the state, county, city and local businesses. The agency was reactivated in 1988-89 to provide testing and supervisory assistance to HUD during the Housing Discrimination Survey. In 1991, members of the board and local attorneys contacted the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) for information and assistance in reactivating the fair housing program in Birmingham. NFHA then applied for and secured FHIP Education and Outreach Funds to provide technical assistance to the GBFHC. The agency became one of three fair housing organizations existing in the Deep South. GBGHC had a seven-couny service area, including Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair, Blount, Walker, Bibb and Etowah Counties. The agency was created as a not-for-profit corporation governed by a volunteer board of directors representing the civic, social, business and educational communities. It was incorporated in 1993 as a 501c(3) agency and opened in June of the same year. The Greater Birmingham Fair Housing Center’s name was changed to the Fair Housing Center of Northern Alabama (FHCNA) in August 1997.

Mission: Our mission is to insure that all who seek housing are given fair and equal access to housing of their choice based upon their ability to acquire.
