United Community Housing Coalition (UCHC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, which provides comprehensive housing assistance to Detroit’s low-income residents. 

Since 1973, the organization has worked with tenants, homesteaders, homeowners, the homeless and community organizations, rebuilding neighborhoods and providing affordable housing, religious, civil rights, labor and housing advocacy to improve, preserve and expand affordable housing opportunities for low-income Detroiters. 

Today, the organization is primarily focused on the following areas of work: landlord tenant legal counseling, housing placement, tenant organizing, and tax and mortgage foreclosure prevention. 
Services are provided to income-eligible families and individuals free of charge.

As of November 1, 2018 UCHC’s housing placement counseling services have changed. UCHC will no longer have a first Thursday morning intake in 2019.

Due to the elimination of all HUD funding for homeless services UCHC is no longer able to work with individuals and families living in shelters, on the streets, in their cars or other such places. Limited relocation assistance can be provided to some City of Detroit residents with a judgment, or being displaced due to new rental code laws or tax foreclosure.

Housing placement and landlord-tenant eviction counselors will be available every Tuesday beginning January 8, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on a walk-in basis. We will see the first 5 people.  

Emergency cases may be seen, as staff is available, at any time. 

Please bring any court documents, lease agreements, receipts for payments, your identification and that of all occupants, and proof of income with you whenever you come.

Landlord-tenant eviction counseling services will continue to representation for eligible clients to prevent evictions as staff is available. Services will continue to be offered at the 36th District Court Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. It is highly advisable that you contact UCHC before your court date.

If you are need of immediate shelter contact the CAM at (313) 305-0311.
