FAIR HOUSING

NO RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS IN CAMARILLO DUE TO COVID-19 FINANCIAL HARDSHIP – EOC DIRECTOR ORDER NO. 20-2

HOUSING RIGHTS CENTER (HRC)
Camarillo is a part of the Ventura County Fair Housing Consortium, which contracts with the Housing Rights Center (HRC). HRC is the nation's largest non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to securing and promoting Fair Housing. HRC was founded in 1968, the same year that Congress passed the Fair Housing Act (FHA). HRC mission is to actively support and promote freedom of residence through education, advocacy, and litigation, to the end that all persons have the opportunity to secure the housing they desire and can afford, without regard to their race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, familial status, marital status, disability, ancestry, age, source of income or other characteristics protected by law.​ Free services include: landlord tenant counseling, outreach and education, and discrimination investigation

PLEASE NOTE:
HRC is closed to the public during the COVID-19 emergency, but still operating their Landlord/Tenant Hotline to handle the fair housing calls during COVID-19 orders and safety guidelines. Please leave a message and the HRC will call back within 24-48 hours.  The hotline number is 1-800-477-5977.  Complaints may also be sent by email to: [email protected].
