About Us

The Fair Housing Center for Rights & Research (formerly known as the Housing Research & Advocacy Center) is a not for profit fair housing agency that promotes equal housing opportunities and positive race relations in Northeast Ohio. The Fair Housing Center was established in 1983 as the Metropolitan Strategy Group, and became the Housing Research & Advocacy Center in 2003. The Fair Housing Center for Rights & Research made its most recent name change in 2018 to better encompass the organization’s mission and scope of services. The Fair Housing Center was founded as a “brown bag” luncheon group of local fair housing/civil rights advocates who shared a goal of expanding housing opportunities for Greater Clevelanders regardless of their race, religion, gender, ethnicities, national origins, familial status, or disability. The Fair Housing Center has significantly grown since its inception in 1983. While the Fair Housing Center continues to advocate for programs that promote fair housing, the scope of the agency has changed from a grass-roots coalition of community groups to a focused fair housing agency. The Fair Housing Center’s general mission remains the same: To ensure, through research, educational programs, public policy and enforcement activities, that all residents are guaranteed equal access to housing.
