We Make Non-Performers Work - For Everyone

We Treat Everyone with the Same Respect

We are a private, for-profit owner/operator of investment properties, both commercial and residential.

Everyone has the right to be free from discrimination in housing both in the rental and home ownership markets and in local zoning and land use policies. All families must have a choice of community housing options, which reflect their personal values, needs, and housing preferences. All housing created for families must be decent and safe. People with disabilities have the right to access housing on a variety of levels: as individuals, as members of communities, and as constituents of the affordable housing delivery system.

It is Cherokee policy to meet or exceed all Federal, State, and local nondiscrimination laws, and any rules or regulations governing Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity in housing and employment. Cherokee will comply with all laws relating to Civil Rights, including: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (as amended by the Community Development Act of 1974 and the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988); Executive Order 11063; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; The Age Discrimination Act of 1975; Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (to the extent that it applies, otherwise Section 504 and the Fair Housing Amendments govern); and any applicable State laws or local ordinances and any legislation protecting individual rights of residents, applicants or staff that may subsequently be enacted.

Cherokee will not discriminate because of race, color, sex, religion, familial status, disability, national origin, marital status, or sexual orientation in the leasing, rental, or other disposition of housing or related facilities, in or related to any property we own.

Cherokee will not, on account of race, color, sex, religion, familial status, disability, national origin, marital status, or sexual orientation: Deny to any family the opportunity to apply for housing, nor deny to any qualified applicant the opportunity to lease housing suitable to its needs; Provide housing that is different from that provided to others; Subject a person to segregation or disparate treatment; Restrict a person s access to any benefit enjoyed by others in connection with the housing program; Treat a person differently in determining eligibility or other requirements for admission; or Deny a person access to the same level of services.

Cherokee will not automatically deny tenancy to a particular group or category of otherwise qualified applicants (e.g., families with children born to unmarried parents, elderly families with pets).
