United Community Housing Coalition

United Community Housing Coalition and Michigan Legal Services provide  comprehensive housing and legal assistance to Detroit’s low-income residents.  In 2015, Detroit Media Machine created a step-by-step video for potential foreclosure victims, on how to navigate the confusing process of foreclosure. DMM also worked with UCHC and MLS to create a series of video portraits about individual families served by the organization. DMM hired local web designer Curtis McGuire to develop a website to showcase the video portraits of UCHC/MLS clients and individuals fighting housing displacement, and to chronicle the history of Detroit’s foreclosure crisis. The videos from the project were also used to help Keep Our Homes Detroit raise over $100,000 to keep residents facing foreclosure in their homes.
