About Us


Our History

Founded in 1966, the Finnish Center dedicated their Cultural Center in September 1974, in Farmington Hills, Michigan with the objective of promoting and preserving the Finnish culture as well as its social and educational activities. In 1975, an elder's housing committee was transformed into the FCA Senior Citizens' Housing Corporation. The Housing Corporation proceeded to develop the Tapiola Village housing for the elderly project in 1986 and the Freedom Square retirement village in 1991. During 1982, the ever increasing membership necessitated the expansion of the Center and extensive renovations to the foyer and main hall.


Our Mission

The Finnish Center Association is dedicated to promoting the preservation of the Finnish and Finnish-American culture by offering its members a wide variety of opportunities to immerse themselves in the Finnish culture. In order to continue the long-standing Finnish focus on education, collegiate scholarships and educational grants are made available on an annual basis.
