THE STORY:

Affordable housing is in dire demand in northern Michigan. The area's high cost of living, particularly for housing, makes it difficult for many low-income residents to keep a roof over their heads and pay their monthly bills, much less get ahead.

Every day, families come to Father Fred in need of assistance with an eviction notice or for help getting into affordable housing. And the need only continues to grow. The number of households seeking housing assistance in 2013 represented a 3% increase from 2012, and a 33% increase from 2011.

Help us keep roofs over our area families' heads. Money raised for Father Fred through the Art Van Charity Challenge will go directly toward helping families and individuals avoid eviction and/or obtain affordable housing - giving them the hope to continue moving forward in their lives.

Thank you!
