Gratus Housing Advocates [GHA] is nonprofit fair housing organization committed to ensuring that all protected class members are provided equal housing opportunity without regard to their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability. GHA will primarily focus its efforts on the housing rights of the active duty and veteran military, law enforcement, and first responder community- known as “Heroes”- in the Southeastern United States. While GHA will assist any person to exercise their housing rights for the purposes of protecting and establishing their fair housing opportunities, GHA will focus on the housing issues affecting the Hero Community, to include their family members and organizations, not limited to any protected class membership. To meet its mission, GHA is committed to providing fair housing related services through counseling, referral services, advocacy, investigation, education and outreach, to anyone involved in the housing process. GHA is authorized to file fair housing complaints to affirmatively further fair housing rights.
