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.

Home for Good Harvest Dinner

Thank you to all of the wonderful Avalon supporters who came out and supported the Home for Good Harvest Dinner this year. We had an amazing time hearing from the Youth Leadership Program, sharing a delicious meal, and celebrating the community’s work to end homelessness!
