Northside Fair Housing Initiative Program
Northside Community Resources is a not-for-profit organization located in the Rogers Park neighborhood offering Fair Housing Education and legal help to renters experiencing discrimination.
NCR’s Fair Housing program investigates possible housing discrimination, assists clients to resolve fair housing disputes with housing providers and conducts community legal education on fair housing rights and responsibilities.
NCR is reaching out especially to non-native speaking individuals who experience housing discrimination at a disproportionate rate because of language barriers and fear of immigration retaliation for speaking out against injustice. We are very interested in learning more about the experiences of housing voucher holders and people of color who are trying to move to the Northside from other areas to escape Chicago's history of segregation. We also help anybody of any background who is having a housing issue.
