If you are traveling or have a layover at Detroit-Wayne County Metropolitan Airport
please visit the Michigan Freedom Center. The team there has a comfortable lounge
and space to relax or even get some sleep. They do an incredible service for our
veterans and active duty military men and women and are always welcoming!
Here is some information about their mission:
The mission of MAFHC is to provide a welcome and friendly respite to traveling military members, veterans, and their families. Serving Those Who Serve Us.
MAFHC is a Michigan nonprofit, incorporated in 2011.
Our goal is to provide a relaxed, home-like atmosphere that embraces and meets the needs of traveling service members and their families. Our facilities are supported and staffed by individual volunteers and organizations from surrounding communities and the Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). Our doors are open to individuals on active duty, National Guard members, Reservists, and service academy cadets. We also welcome military dependents, military retirees and veterans.
To date, we have served over 550,000 active military personnel, their dependents, and veterans at all of our MI Freedom Centers. Our Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) Freedom Centers in the McNamara Terminal (by Gate A-43) and the North Terminal (by Gate D-17) serve traveling active military and their dependents, veterans, retirees, reservists, and members of Allied forces.
In addition to the hospitality centers at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, our Freedom Centers in Troy and Lansing help serve enlistees and their families during the enlistment and swearing-in process.
Our Freedom Centers retain their relaxed, home-like atmospheres that embrace and meet the need 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 through surrounding communities that we can continue to offer world-class service.
These gifts to MAFHC truly further our goal of “Serving Those Who Serve Us.”
