Fair Housing Laws

Our community is a legally sanctioned church or religious organization and living in our community is restricted to members of that religion as allowed by law. Our religion does not discriminate based on race, color, or national origin. Housing in our community is non-commercial (i.e. not intended to make a profit)., Housing in our community is incidental to employment and therefore fair housing laws do not apply (though employment discrimination laws may).
