Avalon’s Aubrey Patino talks with Michigan Radio

Avalon’s Associate Director of Services, Aubrey Patino, talks with Michigan Radio about Avalon’s role in the FUSE (Frequent Users Systems Engagement) Initiative.  She also explains our housing-first approach. In Aubrey’s words, housing-first “treats housing as a basic human right, not a reward for clinical success” to support those who frequently utilize emergency health systems, are homeless and have chronic health conditions.
