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.

United Community Housing Coalition (UCHC) is working to give residents of foreclosed properties the first chance to own the home they already live in. The original Good Neighbors gave when they had little to spare–because they knew what was at stake. Now we are asking you to be a Good Neighbor! Please support this effort by giving now and clicking the orange support button on this page. THANK YOU!
