With these supports, we can end homelessness in Washtenaw County.
Avalon Housing and Faith In Action are partnering on a proposed 24-unit affordable housing development at 7651 Dan Hoey Rd. in Dexter, Michigan. More information about the project can be found here.
We need your support! If you are a Dexter city resident or have children enrolled in Dexter schools, please consider attending a meeting and speaking in support of this development during the Public Hearing portion of the meetings. You will have 5 minutes to speak. The upcoming meetings are scheduled to take place at the Dexter Senior Center (7720 Ann Arbor Street, Dexter) at 7:00 pm:

- September 9th: Public Hearing at City Council reviewing site plan/zoning and sale of the land
- If you are unable to attend, we urge you to email Dexter City Council and express your support.
