SERVICES BY MEMBER/PARTNERS WITH THE
FAIR HOUSING ALLIANCE OF GREATER
The launching of this website comes at the best time to establish
a network and open line of communication to assist as many people,
communities and organizations as possible to get through this
The mission of FHAGM
is to reach the community as well as organizations
who are impacted by housing issues and this includes everyone.
Everyone needs shelter and the comfort of home.
In an effort to provide education and outreach on fair, accessible
and affordable housing issues, we have a variety of partners
and members who are subject matter experts in their respective
fields and we sincerely appreciate their dedicated involvement
in this organization. We have listed organizations which provide a wealth
of knowledge in their area of expertise. If you are interested in contacting either of these organizations,
please click on their link (if available on our Partners page) or send us an email
We have partners, members and organizations who have the professional
staff to address the comprehensive housing needs of every community
throughout the country from multifamily housing to assistance
with accessing loan products. There are also organizations on
local, state and federal levels who can provide information
on funding assistance to the communities of Memphis and Shelby
County (i.e. HUD provides millions of dollars through grants
to promote fair, accessible, affordable and decent housing to
members of our community). There are also staff members who
can speak on the different programs and projects which have
been implemented to address housing needs.
We also have members and organizations (U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development and the Tennessee Human Rights
Commission) who are involved in providing education and outreach
on fair housing in connection to the Civil Rights Act of 1968,
also known as the Fair Housing Act, as well as a 1988 Fair Housing
Amendment which amongst other issues, addresses housing for
individuals with disabilities and families with legal guardianship
of children under the age of eighteen (18).
We have a number of banking/mortgage organizations who provide
alternative means of banking and financing like HOPE/EDU who
offer suggestions and assistance to members of the community
on becoming financially secure and homeowners.
There is also the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
which provides subject matter experts to share information on
legislation and programs in place to address the housing crisis
and to provide support getting through the storm.
There is Habitat for Humanity which provides decent housing
for families not only in our metropolitan area, but throughout
the country and we appreciate their continued dedicated efforts
along with the NAACP who have continued to be a part of not
only the Alliance but have worked on a state level to combat
the economic ills which are plaguing our community.
Please take the time to continue reviewing our website on a
periodic basis to keep up with the latest information and new
partners and members who may be able to provide some education
and outreach on housing issues which may concern you. I am sure
that you will always find something of interest to you.
