Welcome to the Church of the Messiah Housing Corp.

Organized in 1978 to confront the extensive deterioration and demolition of housing in the Islandview Village neighborhood on Detroit's lower east side, CMHC continues to be a stabilizing force in the community.

Our Mission

The mission of the Church of the Messiah Housing Corporation is to engage in housing, community and economic development activities to improve the quality of life on the lower east side of Detroit.
