Joining the Fair Housing Center is a good investment in justice. Since 1992 the FHC has helped complainants file 86 lawsuits and recover over $2,100,000 in damages, while keeping all of our services free. These settlements keep the message clear — housing discrimination is illegal and expensive. 

As a member, you will receive our newsletters, reports and other updates, along with notices and invitations to FHC events.

Here is what your membership dollars can do:

  • $35 would defray the cost of printing Fair Housing law educational materials for the public;
  • $50 would fund our toll-free phone line for one month, making it easier for potential complainants to contact the FHC;
  • $100 would cover FHC tester mileage for one week, to investigate claims of illegal housing discrimination;
  • $210 would fund three hours of work on a reasonable accommodation complaint for a person with a disability;
  • $350 would cover one month of FHC outreach advertisements in area newspapers;
  • $850 would entirely fund the cost of one test (two or more tests are normally needed for each complaint).

The FHC is a private nonprofit 501(c)3. We are a valued member of the GuideStar Exchange. We provide fair housing services to 1.2 million people eight Michigan counties: Clinton, Eaton, Ingham, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe and Washtenaw.
