Housing is a basic human right.

At Avalon, we help our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness find housing. 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.

Hickory Way Murals Complete!

Thanks to generous private donations and a grant from the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, artists have completed three large murals at our Hickory Way Phase One property in Ann Arbor.  Artist Samar Salam completed the first floor mural, entitled “The Nest,” and Gary Horton completed second-floor mural “Home Sick” and third-floor mural “Swim at Your Own Risk.” Avalon tenants enjoyed talking with the artists and watching the progress of each mural throughout the fall.

Avalon’s goal is to continue building community and making people feel at home with future art projects!
