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 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 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 800 people, including 200 children.

HouseN2Home and volunteers create homes at Hickory Way!

ALL our gratitude to HouseN2Home and all the volunteers who came together to furnish new Hickory Way apartments for our tenants in January. We are beyond thrilled to welcome people into their beautiful new homes!!

Thank you to Sarah Parlette of WDIV/All About Ann Arbor for covering this community-wide effort.

As Jessica Howell, Avalon Hickory Way Support Coordinator says, “What is so incredible about this project, is the people that have come together to create this atmosphere and these homes. Our clients that get to move in will get the sense that the community cares about them. I cannot tell you how much that means to our clients.  It says ‘You deserve this, we see you.’”
