Fair Housing Month - Everyone has the Right to Fair Housing

April is National Fair Housing Month. Fair housing means that no one can take race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or presence of children into account in renting or selling housing. 
In Illinois, buyers and renters are also protected from discrimination on the basis of age, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry or military discharge status. If you are seeking housing in Cook County, you are additionally protected on the basis of source of income or housing status.
Skokie was the first municipality in the State of Illinois to adopt a Fair Housing Ordinance. The Human Relations Commission is responsible for pursuing fair housing issues in the Village of Skokie.
Skokie Fair Housing questions or complaints should be directed to the Village's Human Services Division at 847/933-8208.
