2015 Membership Campaign Matching Funds Needed

Dennis J. Varian

With much gratitude, FHCMD welcomes Dennis Varian of Associated Management and FHCMD board member, Terry L. Ward as co-chairs for the 2015 Outreach & Education Initiative.

This year, the center must raise $60,000 in matching funds in order access the HUD grant dollars that are critical to the continued functioning of the Center.

Dennis Varian on Why I Support Fair Housing

I support equal housing first, because I believe it is the right thing to do. Second, because it is the law. Third, because I believe it benefits my industry of multifamily property management by providing broad and open markets. I support the Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit because it makes sure that the law is enforced and everyone's housing rights are protected and also provides education for our industry and our customers. - Dennis Varian, President, The Associated Management Company

Since its inception over thirty years ago, the Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit (FHCMD) has fought for the right for all home seekers to be treated fairly and with dignity. They have assisted in the establishment of fair housing centers in more than 20 communities and helped educate and guide thousands working in legal affairs, property management and real estate. The FHCMD has helped to earn over $11 million in financial settlements and awards for victims.

Your support of the Fair Housing Outreach and Education Initiative, will help us to continue providing the community, the state and the region with critical information in the fight against housing discrimination.

Funds will be used for training and public information programs about fair housing issues and will help provide consulting and program implementation to employers, businesses, governmental units, attorneys and housing providers. Legal training for attorneys litigating fair housing cases and support to neighborhood groups and community organizations will also be offered.

All donations are tax-deductible.

Since its inception in 1977, FHCMD has played a major leadership role in supporting fair housing across the United States. We hope that you will support us today by making a contribution to the Fair Housing Outreach and Education Initiative.

The evidence from the housing discrimination complaints filed with FHCMD by home seekers, from the "testing" conducted by the FHCMD, and from the statements provided by many housing providers who support fair housing laws and are willing to step forward to help expose violations of those laws, demonstrates that practices of unlawful housing discrimination continue and the services of FHCMD are needed.
