Mission Statement

The mission of Avalon Housing is to develop, own, and/or manage permanent leased housing that is affordable to people with low incomes, including those in minimum/low-wage employment or on limited fixed incomes. Avalon Housing is committed to the inclusion of persons with disabilities and special needs who are underserved in the housing market.

In operating housing, Avalon will utilize an enhanced management approach that maximizes problem solving, minimizes eviction, and ensures financial viability, property maintenance and safety.

Description

Avalon Housing is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing and managing permanent rental housing for people with extremely low incomes in Washtenaw County. Avalon owns and operates 210 units of housing, scattered at fifteen sites throughout Ann Arbor. Rents are structured to be affordable to people with incomes at or below 30% of the area median income, and the majority of tenants include people who were homeless and who have a mental or physical disability. Support services are available to all tenants in order to assist them in maintaining their housing stability and enhance their quality of life.

Would you recommend Avalon Housing?

Avalon Housing provides much needed help to underserved individuals and families in the Ann Arbor area. Their organizational strategy of offering voluntary support services for their residents, who often have mental and/or physical disabilities, is a great policy. Offering support when needed, but not forcing residents into actions against their will, takes the burden of an unstable living situation off the shoulders of the residents, and increases their chances of success in the future.

Avalon has a nationally-recognized program to help County residents who are homeless or have extremely low incomes. They help residents obtain medical benefits and jobs training, and run community garden (Edible Avalon) and beautification (Gardening with Grace) programs for residents.
