Since 1985, CAFHA has spearheaded the movement to dismantle racial segregation in housing throughout Chicago and surrounding communities.
CAFHA centers its work in the leadership of those directly impacted by longstanding housing discrimination.
ADVANCING HOUSING JUSTICE

CAFHA conducts innovative research and uses a racial equity lens to shed light on housing opportunities lost through racist policies of the past, suggesting pathways for restoration.
BUILDING BROAD-BASED COALITIONS
CAFHA brings together a variety of experts and community members to advocate for policies that eliminate housing discrimination and create equitable and affordable housing opportunities.
CAFHA offers multiple training solutions to nonprofit groups, landlords, and other industry professionals. Our goal is to create more awareness about the essentials of providing fair and equal access to housing.
