FREC Programs

Accounting Aid Society provides tax assistance and other services to promote the economic self-sufficiency of middle to low-income families, seniors and others in need through programs, volunteerism and partnerships.

Accounting Aid Society was established in Detroit in 1972 by accountants who wanted to give back to the community.  Since our founding, we have helped return more than $300 million to individuals and families in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Livingston counties, and in turn, into our region’s economy.

Free tax preparation and related services are available by appointment year-round at the FREC for households with income under and $53,000 and individuals with incomes under $35,000.  For more information go to www.accountingaidsociety.org.

The Southwest Detroit Immigrant and Refugee Center (SWIRC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit company, was founded in August 2014 to provide legal services, housing assistance, and business consulting to persons from throughout the Detroit metropolitan area. 

Since June 2015 our Free Legal Clinic at the Mercado has helped hundreds with a wide variety of issues at NO COST.  As affordable legal services become increasingly difficult to find in Detroit, SWIRC continues to expand its outreach thanks to dedicated volunteers and financial grants from supporters.
