Education and Outreach

The Tennessee Fair Housing Council has developed a robust education and outreach program.  The Council believes that education is the key to prevention of housing discrimination; therefore, the Council seeks to provide meaningful education to as many groups of people who interact with the populations served by the Council.  We believe it is especially important to educate landlords, realtors, and lenders so that they understand how easy it is to follow the law. In addition, the Council continues to develop relationships with service providers for the different protected classes.  We have successfully trained numerous case managers who work with persons with disabilities and survivors of domestic violence to recognize issues that may trigger a Fair Housing violation.  Case managers are empowered with knowledge that enables them to head off problems before they happen whenever possible.

Population(s) Served
