How You Can Help
Taking Action Together
Each one of us can help our neighbors in Washtenaw County connect with safe, affordable housing and the support they need to thrive in their homes.
Advocate for affordable housing by attending City Council and Planning Commission meetings to speak in support of proposed affordable housing developments in the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County. Sign up for the Washtenaw Housing Alliance’s news and advocacy alerts and sign up for Avalon’s quarterly newsletter.
Donate to help organizations like Avalon Housing continue to provide services that help keep vulnerable people in their homes.
KNOW THE FACTS
Dispel myths, like the inaccurate “Some people just choose to be homeless.” Encourage people to get educated, so they understand that homelessness is due to a lack of affordable housing, and to poverty and racism.
