Avalon Housing’s work prioritizes housing stability, creating a foundation to sustain healthy lives and communities.
Improving Health and Quality of Life
97% Stay Housed
With care and support (case management), 97 percent of the people we work with stay in their homes and experience housing stability.
Less Emergency Care
One study of people experiencing homelessness found that people connected with supportive housing were 27 percent less likely to rely on the emergency room as a main source of care.
With housing stability, our clients can recover from mental and physical illness, grow healthy relationships, engage in their communities, complete their education and gain employment.
Expanding Access to Affordable Housing in Washtenaw County
Avalon currently owns and manages 29 sites across Ann Arbor, Chelsea and Dexter.
Washtenaw County saw a 31 percent decrease in chronic homelessness when we opened Hickory Way in 2021.
By creating four new housing developments in the next few years, we will add 152 affordable apartments to Washtenaw County.
We’re Part of a Movement for Housing Justice
When we advocate for housing for all, we help dismantle the systems that marginalize and oppress people. Our work is rooted in the idea that everyone deserves a stable home, and that having a home provides a foundation to build on.
We change our community for good.
