Since its inception in 2017, the Make It Home program has helped more than 1,500 Detroit families stay in homes facing tax-related foreclosure.

This year, over 100 families are participating in the program, including the family of Demetrius Brown.

“It’s important because I have three girls,” Brown says. “It’s important that they have somewhere safe and stable to live.”
