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.

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.

Help furnish 70 new apartments for people exiting homelessness!

In 2020 Avalon Housing will start leases and move-ins for the first phase of 70 units of affordable housing at Hickory Way Apartments in Ann Arbor. Hickory Way tenants will be exiting homelessness and moving into new homes for the first time in a long time.  They will all need basic furnishings and household items.

For help, Avalon has turned to Washtenaw-based HouseN2Home, a local nonprofit that fully furnishes apartments for people throughout the County as they exit homelessness. We’re also partnering with Kiwanis Thrift Sale, who will again be accepting donations of furniture and household items starting on September 15.

We also need your help to welcome our neighbors into their new homes.

To find out how to “sponsor” a Hickory Way household, visit housen2home.org.  To learn more about donating household furnishings to Kiwanis, visit a2kiwanisfoundation.org.  We are especially in need of loveseats, comfortable chairs, small bedroom dressers and small kitchen tables and kitchen chairs.
