MAFHC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit, incorporated in the State of Michigan in 2011.
MAFHC's mission is to provide a world-class reception and hospitality center for military personnel through our Freedom Centers located in Michigan at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Lansing, and Troy. All of the services we are able to provide are due to the generosity of our donors and the hard work of our volunteers.
Our Freedom Centers retain their relaxed, home-like atmospheres that embrace and meet the needs of traveling service members and their families, through generous monetary and in-kind donations. It is only through the support of our donors, our volunteers, and organizations from the airport and surrounding communities that we can continue to offer world-class service.
