2023 Fair Housing Breakfast

The 10th Annual Fair Housing Breakfast was held on October 26, 2023. John P. Relman, the founder and managing partner of Relman Colfax, joined us as our guest speaker. Thank you to everyone who joined us. The event raised over $53,000 – together, we ARE putting an end to housing discrimination in our communities.

The recipient of the 2024 FHC Mark Mitshkun Board of Directors Award was Courtney Atsalakis. Ms. Atsalakis founded the Amber Reineck House – a home for women with substance use issues in Howell, Michigan, named for her sister who died of a fentanyl overdose. When the City of Howell tried to stop her from opening the house,  Ms. Atsalakis was tireless in her commitment to working with the Fair Housing Center and Cooperating Attorneys at Relman & Colfax (Lila Miller, Glenn Schlactus, Sara Pratt, and Nick Abbott, with paralegal assistance from Charlotte Saltzman), Dane Law, LLC (Stephen Dane), and Pitt McGhee Palmer Bonanni & Rivers PC (Robin Wagner).

It took four years but the City changed its policies and the lawsuit, Amber Reineck House v City of Howell settled earlier this year for $750,000.
