Mission Statement

MFHC's mission is to enforce and defend human and civil rights and promote fair housing practices through education, research, and the dissemination of information. MFHC works to educate tenants, landlords, and community groups on fair housing and fair lending practices, provide legal advice and advocacy to clients who have experienced housing discrimination, and remain educated and informed on fair housing issues affecting the people within our service area.

Description

MFHC provides the following services:
• Education and community outreach about fair housing issues;
• Investigation of fair housing complaints;
• Legal advice and representation to the victims of discrimination;
• Information and education on fair housing practices for tenants, housing providers, and lenders. When you call MFHC with a complaint, we will: • Listen to your story and collect important information; • Thoroughly investigate your complaint; • Review the results of the investigation with you and help make decisions on how to proceed. If discrimination is found MFHC will help you file a complaint with the proper agency and aid you through the legal process. In some cases you may be able to obtain the unit you were illegally denied and/or receive monetary damages.
