The TFHC is a private, non-profit advocacy organization whose mission is to eliminate housing discrimination throughout Tennessee. Our enforcement program is based in Nashville and concentrates on Davidson, Cheatham, Dickson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson and Wilson counties.
Our organization provides education and advocacy on housing discrimination, and we also take complaints from individuals who believe they are experiencing or have experienced discrimination. Our work with individual clients sometimes involves negotiating disability-related accommodations with landlords, and on some occasions we provide legal representation to individuals who wish to file an administrative complaint or lawsuit.
