The Morris County Fair Housing Council records document the first twenty five years of the Morristown New Jersey based non-profit corporation. On March 12, 1963, nine individuals, concerned about racial discrimination in Morris County housing, met at Drew University. Recognizing the need for citizen involvement to combat discriminatory housing practices in Morris County, they agreed to plan a course of action, and so "The Morris County Fair Housing Council" was born.
Their mission became to ensure that anyone, regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, nationality, ancestry, sex, marital status, familial status, mental or physical handicap and sexual orientation could obtain suitable housing without discrimination.
On October 25, 2001, the Morris County Fair Housing Council became The Fair Housing and Assistance Program of the Urban League. A multi racial organization, the Urban League is a leading proponent of cooperation between cultures. Today, The Fair Housing and Assistance Program continues to help the disenfranchised by opening doors to employment and career paths in local businesses and corporations.
