HOW THE HOUSING RIGHTS CENTER CAN ASSIST YOU

The Housing Rights Center is contracted through the City of Alhambra to provide information on such matters as evictions, security deposits, rent increases, repairs and lease/contract issues. As needed, patrons will receive referrals to other agencies and/or appropriate literature. Additional services include Discrimination Complaint Investigation, Enforcement & Litigation, Predatory Lending Hotline, Outreach & Education, and Advocacy. A free leaflet, available at the library, explains all of the services available through the Housing Rights Center. In California, virtually every unit of housing for rent or sale is covered by Federal, State, and Local laws (which provide for remedies to illegal discrimination including injunctive relief, monetary damages, and penalties) that guard against discrimination based on race l color l sex and sexual harassment l religion l national origin l ancestry l mental or physical disability (HIV & AIDS included) l familial status (children) l marital status l age l  sexual orientation l source of Income l student status l arbitrary reasons.
