WHO WE SERVE

CAN works with individuals and households living in the Hikone and Green Baxter Court public housing units managed by the Ann Arbor Housing Commission and an additional 265 households in the Bryant Neighborhood.

Call the Washtenaw 211 resource hotline if you live in another neighborhood and need assistance.
