Avalon Housing is a community-based, non-profit organization that was created in 1992 to develop, own, and manage permanent supportive housing. Our mission is to provide affordable housing and support services for Washtenaw County's lowest income households, with a priority on people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who have a mental or physical disability. The majority of our tenant households has experienced homelessness or housing instability and has a range of special needs. Voluntary support services are available to all tenants to help them maintain their housing and enhance their quality of life.
Utilizing a “Housing First” approach, our services teams help tenants achieve housing stability and move beyond homelessness. Services staff also collaborates with community partners to ensure the coordinated delivery of a broad range of services that meet the mental, physical, psycho-social and housing needs of the individuals either through direct service or linkage to appropriate resources.
