Housing Opportunities Made Equal 42nd Annual Meeting

Through our involvement in Public Allies, RAPP is establishing a growing relationship with an amazing, long-standing organization in Cincinnati: Housing Opportunities Made Equal.

HOME's mission is that it "exists to eliminate illegal discrimination in housing, especially racial discrimination, and to promote balanced living patterns."

HOME accomplishes this by providing a wide variety of needed services to our community.  They include educational outreach so that consumers and landlords understand the law, helping people access housing, providing mediation, and preventing homelessness.  Through its many decades of work, HOME also has a great knowledge of the history of housing and housing discrimination in Greater Cincinnati and great understanding of how that contributes to current issues in housing discrimination.

Thursday, September 23rd, HOME will host its 42nd Annual Meeting in the Cincinnati Museum Center.  Keynote speaker will be UC's own President Gregory Williams.  The ticket to the event includes discounted ticket price to the exhibit "America I AM, The African-American Imprint."  Tickets are $50/person; a table for 10 can be sponsored for $500.  RSVPs are needed by September 17th.
