Third, a clear and measurable application and evaluation process reduces your risk of discrimination. While you may not intend to discriminate, using an application process where you treat applicants differently based on undefined circumstances may lead to you inadvertently treating some groups of people different than others. Having a clear application process ensures that you are treating all applicants equally, without regard to their race, ethnicity, religious background, gender, or other protected class.

In addition to non-discrimination, having a clear application process helps you create an equitable environment in recovery housing. Equity is about more than simply not discriminating against someone because of their race, ethnicity, or disability. Equity is about taking proactive steps to make sure that all people feel welcome, safe, and respected within your program.  A well-defined application process can communicate your value and commitment to equity by not only preventing discrimination but also communicating your values. For example, by ensuring that all residents who are seeking to move into the recovery home are prepared to live with individuals who are different then they are and are willing to respect any cultural or other differences.
