The Fair Housing Center is looking to establish an in-depth branding guide. Our organization is currently looking to overhaul our website and increase our marketing capacity. We want to create a streamlined, professional, and accessible look. Critically, we are looking for volunteers who are familiar with, or able to learn and implement graphic design industry standards of accessibility, compliance with the ADA, and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) into visual brand guide.
At the Fair Housing Center of Southeast and Mid Michigan, we are responsible for enforcing the Fair Housing Act. We achieve this through education, advocacy, investigation, and collaboration with legal service providers. As advocates for disabled individuals and others with access needs, it is important our visual materials are accessible to our clients. We also feel it important to set a leading example for other agencies, and appeal to donors and grand providers.
The mission of the Fair Housing Center is to end discrimination in housing and public accommodations and to promote accessible, integrated communities.
We are a nonprofit dedicated to investigating complaints of illegal housing discrimination based on federal, state, and local fair housing laws, as well as resolving reasonable accommodation and modification requests for people with disabilities. Protected classes include race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, familial status (the presence of children), marital status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
The Fair Housing Center provides investigative services, testing, advice, advocacy, conciliation, attorney referral, and community education in eight counties in Michigan (population 1.4 million.)
