WHAT WE DO

CAN provides programs and services to families living in low income Ann Arbor neighborhoods.  We help create brighter futures by offering educational support to children and youth, housing stabilization services for adults and families, and positive community building activities for neighborhoods.

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.
