In April of 1968, seven days changed fair housing forever. The National Fair Housing Alliance and Nationwide tell an important story about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and one of the most important civil rights struggles in our nation’s history.
In 1968 the United States government enacted the Fair Housing Act which prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, and familial status.
The purpose of the Fair Housing Act is to eliminate discrimination and ensure everyone is treated equally in both the sale and rental of housing.
Housing discrimination doesn’t always mean having a door slammed in your face or a bigoted remark directed your way. Unsuspecting renters or home buyers may be politely turned away from the housing of their choice, even though they are qualified.
If you feel like you have been treated unfairly in the home buying or renting process, please contact our agency at 313-541-9828 or contact the Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit at 313-963-1274 or the National Fair Housing Alliance.

"Mrs. Stallings was BEYOND helpful. I have an infant child and she took time from her personal schedule to assist me. She has continually checked on my progress and the status on my search for a home. I can’t convey how appreciative I am not only for the program but for her. Above and beyond doesn’t begin to describe what she has done."

"I’m so glad that I stopped procrastinating and actually signed up for it. It was well worth it, and even though I had started preparing for owning a home (improving my credit score, etc.), this class has given me the motivation I need to keep working at it."
