Metro In-Home Solutions (Metro IHS) held a special gathering to mark its success in providing quality and affordable home modifications that enable seniors and persons with disabilities to live safely, independently, and comfortably in their homes.
In 2016, Metro IHS modified 18 homes that qualified for special grants. In 2017, it expects to modify 28. Metro IHS is a partnership of Southwest Solutions, Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, Jewish Family Service of Metro Detroit, and Hartford Community Development Corporation.
The bank partners this year are Fifth Third Bank, First Independence Bank, Chemical Bank, and One Detroit Credit Union. The banks process funds for the grants to the homeowners made available through the Accessibility Modification Program (AMP) administered by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis.
The seed funding for Metro IHS was provided by the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan. To learn more about Metro IHS, email Gary Gray.
