On July 26, 2017, Avalon Housing residents Linda Rama and Julia Blades spoke on the steps of the Michigan State Capitol at the How Housing Changed My Life rally. The goal of this National Day of Housing Action event was to advocate for federal funding for affordable housing.  Linda and Julia each spoke about their respective journeys from homelessness to stable housing. Thank you Linda and Julia and to the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness for sponsoring this event!   Photo credits:  Heather Nash, Washtenaw Housing Alliance
