Ways to Give
When you give, you help us provide vital education of fair housing laws and practices, research the state of housing discrimination in communities, and restore housing choice to people who may have been discriminated against. The Fair Housing Center of West Michigan is amongst the only fair housing centers in the country to provide a mix of education, research, and advocacy. While the Center contracts with federal, state, and local governments and agencies to provide fair housing services, the majority of these contract funds go to advocacy and research efforts. Your financial support is crucial to the Fair Housing Center's ability to continue to develop and deliver educational events and programs. Without the support of donors, we would be limited to offering the services for which we are directly contracted to provide.
