Some Histories and Stakeholders of the Detroit Housing Crisis:
What methods have nonprofits employed to address housing issues in Detroit, and what can the University of Michigan do to help?
For decades, Metropolitan Detroit has failed to provide adequate housing for its residents. Community nonprofit organizations have worked hard to address the problem, but it persists.
Redlining, housing shortages, and market stagnation have all contributed to housing issues in Detroit over the past. This case study will focus on three nonprofit organizations that have worked or currently work to assist residents in securing affordable and equitable housing in Detroit, Michigan. The study will look at their strategies, then recommend how the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor could assist the adjacent community in Detroit in addressing the ongoing crisis.
