Fair housing help now available in SW Michigan

April 17, 2003
You see a "For Rent" sign in the window of an apartment and you call the number.
     Your heart sinks when the landlord changes the cost of rent when he sees you.
     You may have been discriminated against.
     But now there is someone who will help residents of Calhoun, Barry and Branch counties who think they are victims of discrimination.
     The Partnership for Fair Housing Center of Southwest Michigan officially opened its doors Monday in the Neighborhoods Inc. building -- at 47 N. Washington Ave. -- and is gearing up to educate people on fair housing law.
