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.
Dexter Call to Action!
Hilltop View Apartments is a proposed 24-unit property in Dexter, and a collaborative venture between Avalon and Faith in Action, the organization that has been working for the past 40 years to alleviate the effects of hunger and poverty in the Chelsea and Dexter areas.
Monday, March 2nd, at 7:00 pm the Dexter Planning Commission meets in the Dexter Senior Center (720 Ann Arbor Street, Dexter). At this meeting, the Planning Commission will vote whether or not to recommend approval of the final site plan and zoning for Hilltop Apartments. We need help from City of Dexter residents in the audience and at the microphone to voice their support for this housing effort and site plan.
There will also be two City Council meetings where we need the supportive community voices of Dexter residents. Both meetings are again at the Dexter Senior Center. Dates:
Monday, March 9th at 7:00 pm and
Monday, March 23rd at 7:00 pm.
We anticipate a public hearing and final vote on the site plan, zoning, and on the ordinance for the sale of the Dan Hoey land to occur during the second meeting, so advocacy will be crucial on March 23rd at 7:00 pm.
Faith in Action and Avalon recently hosted information sessions about Hilltop on February 6 and 15 at Dexter United Methodist Church. To learn more, read the full Dexter Sun Times News article.
