Affordable housing is difficult to find in this area, and people often ask how they can become an Avalon resident. Unfortunately, Avalon does not handle housing applications or maintain a waiting list for our housing units. In 2013, Washtenaw County implemented a new system to centralize housing resources for people who are experiencing homelessness.
There is one single point of access to housing and services if you are homeless in Washtenaw County: HAWC, or Housing Access for Washtenaw County. If you are in need of housing, or facing a housing emergency, please call HAWC at (734) 961-1999 or visit their website at www.housingaccess.net.
HAWC staff will gather your information and follow up with you regarding housing options. All Avalon vacancies are filled through referrals from HAWC.
