We believe that housing is a basic human right.

At Avalon, we help our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness find housing, without preconditions. Then we provide them essential supports to help them stay in their homes. Permanently affordable housing. A community to belong to. Individual services grounded in compassion and dignity. With these supports, we can end homelessness in Washtenaw County.

Avalon Housing is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit services provider, real estate developer and property manager. We own and manage 328 rental units in 27 properties in Washtenaw County.  We provide support services to our tenants and to individuals and families living in public housing and in units owned by private landlords.  In total we serve more than 800 people, including 200 children.
