Avalon Housing is a non-profit supportive housing provider created in 1992 as a long-term solution to homelessness. Avalon owns and operates apartments at sites throughout Ann Arbor, manages rent vouchers with private landlords, and partners with the Ann Arbor Housing Commission to provide housing alternatives for formerly homeless adults and families throughout Washtenaw County.
The Family and Community Services Team provides outreach, intensive case management, care coordination and housing- based support services to family households in a supportive housing setting. The families served by this position face many challenges including mental illness, substance abuse disorders, chronic medical conditions, domestic violence, and the involvement of child protective services. This team also coordinates the majority of Avalon's Community Building work, including food pantries, youth programming, tenant events and our tenant leadership program, VOCAL (Voices of Community Advocates and Leaders).
Utilizing a "Housing First" approach, the Family and Community Services Team works closely with Avalon property managers to help tenants achieve housing stability and move beyond homelessness. Services staff also collaborate with community partners to ensure the coordinated delivery of a broad range of services that meet the mental, physical, psycho-social and housing needs of the families either through direct service or linkage to appropriate resources.
