Become a Member

Show your support for fair housing, fair lending, civil rights, and equal opportunity in Southeast & Mid Michigan by becoming a member of the Fair Housing Center.

Members are what makes our successes possible. Successes like those on our litigation log or disability advocacy page. Successes that are deeply personal yet change the landscape in which we all live. Membership dollars also go toward creating and distributing educational materials like our FHC Fact Sheets. Our work is only possible thanks to the foresight and generosity of community members, businesses, and foundations.




Membership Levels:

  • Individual/Household – $35 or more
  • Professional – $50 or more [includes your name and organizational affiliation]
  • Organizational/Business – $100 or more

Older adults or people with limited/fixed incomes may request a waiver/reduction in dues from the FHC Board.

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.

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.
