Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Greater Lansing Housing Coalition is committed to providing quality, affordable housing for low and moderate income persons and revitalizing neighborhoods.
Greater Lansing Housing Corporation (GLHC), a non-profit community development corporation, provides quality affordable housing for low and moderate income persons and helps revitalize neighborhoods. Since 1989, GLHC has rehabilitated over 145 homes and 243 apartments in the Lansing area.

What a great way to help low to mod senior citizens. I helped build a wheelchair ramp. There was no cost to the homeowner a senior citizen. Great program! Recognized by the Gov of MI and President Obama!
