We believe that housing is a basic human right.

At Avalon, we help our community’s most vulnerable citizens 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, dignity and a radical acceptance of all. 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 292 rental units in 25 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 750 people, including 200 children.

Avalon COVID-19 Update

We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely. We’ll provide updates on this page on a regular basis.

Currently one of the most reliable sources of online information on the Coronavirus is at the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.  

Avalon serves people who are medically vulnerable. Our most at-risk clients are older adults and those with serious medical conditions. Avalon Services staff provide vital supports to these clients.  Our staff will continue to provide critical services to our clients safely and responsibly.  With the help of Food Gatherers, Tea Haus and the AAPS, we’re providing  supplies of food and pre-boxed meals to our clients who need them.

To protect the safety of our community and mitigate the potential transmission of the COVID-19 virus, Avalon staff will be working remotely, and no staff will be at our main office, as of Friday March 13 at noon.

Tenants and clients should contact their property managers and support coordinators as you normally would.

Tenants should contact Avalon’s main number at 734-663-5858 for any maintenance issues.
