Helping our community to prosper by providing quality housing assistance for all, revitalizing neighborhoods and empowering residents through education and counseling.
The Greater Lansing Housing Coalition (GLHC) was created as a private non-profit 501 c(3) community development corporation, providing quality, affordable housing to people of modest means and help revitalize neighborhoods.
Since 1995 GLHC has acquired, rehabilitated (or newly constructed) and sold more than 125 single-family homes to income eligible, first-time home buyers
The Coalition has 235 rental units and has assisted 185 families in purchasing their first home. GLHC is the General Partner in two joint ventures that provide 32 apartments reserved for very low income and/or chronically homeless individuals. GLHC has completed a third partnership that will serve 18 additional individuals and families with supportive services provided to assist them.
Founded in 1989, GLHC has a professional staff of seven and a governing Board of Directors.
GLHC controls two solely owned subsidiary corporations: Edgewood Village in Meridian Township, a 135 apartment community purchased in 1994, and Jefferson Street Square Apartments in Mason housing 62 seniors. Walnut Street Apartments in Lansing has nine apartments for people who are homeless and experiencing a serious mental illness. Residents of Walnut Street Apartments are served through a partnership with Community Mental Health of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties and Justice In Mental Health Organization (JIMHO).
GLHC mission relies on close collaboration with many Lansing neighborhoods: Genesee, Westside, Renaissance, Moores Park, River Point and Baker-Donora. These neighborhoods have been enriched due to the steady revitalization efforts of GLHC and the active neighborhood organizations with concerned residents in these areas.
GLHC’s major financial partners include the City of Lansing, Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA), Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), Great Lakes Capital Fund, Dart Bank, Greater Lansing Association of Realtors, First Financial Bank, Summit Community Bank and a great many fine individuals and institutions that believe in the progressive needs served by Greater Lansing Housing Coalition.
