Our Mission
Freedom House Detroit is a temporary home for indigent survivors of persecution from around the world who are seeking asylum in the United States and Canada. Our mission is to uphold a fundamental American principle, one inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty, providing safety for those "yearning to breathe free."
Guided by our belief that all persons deserve to live free from oppression and to be treated with justice, compassion and dignity, we offer a continuum of care and services to our residents as well as to other refugees in need. We advocate for systemic change that more fully recognizes the rights of asylum seekers.

“Freedom House Detroit is brave, just, and committed. It offers a safe, welcoming and healing space to those who have risked their lives for justice — and stands beside them as they address their legal, physical, psycho-social, and employment needs. It is incomparable and needed more everyday.”

Frank Mugisha
Executive Director, Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG)

“First of all, I like the work of Freedom House because I have traveled around quite, quite a lot, and I think it’s extraordinary what I’ve seen. They do this for especially people who are vulnerable, people who need support in countries that are not their own. So it’s very remarkable.”

Susan Reed
Managing Attorney, Michigan Immigrant Rights Center

“What Freedom House does meets a critical need in the state and the nation both in terms of the services they provide and the spirit they represent. At a time in our history when America’s promise to so many is being broken, Freedom House is working hard to keep it. Thank you, Freedom House!”
