Helping YOU home! - That's what we do!
Our Mission: Transforming our communities and empowering people through housing opportunities. 

We recognize the Fair Housing Act and its commitment to ensure families have access to housing that is free from discrimination.

If you feel you have been discriminated against, please contact our Housing Counselor, Theressa Nichols, for information on fair housing if you need help.

Note: If you have an impairment, disability, language barrier or otherwise require an alternative means of completing forms or accessing information about FMHA programs, please contact FMHA staff about arranging alternative accommodations. - For Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) please dial 711
