Avalon Village/Homework House
Avalon Village is a self-sustaining eco village in Highland Park. This unique community-building project is restoring hope, inspiration, and much-needed city services to a forgotten, underserved neighborhood.
The village encompasses an entire city block between Woodward Avenue and Second Street and currently owns 29 plots of land and five houses, including the Homework House, with plans to acquire and revitalize additional properties and structures.
The Homework House is an afterschool program for neighborhood children that will provide tutoring and academic programs, healthy meals, and recreational activities. EVO Detroit has provided funds to finish the roof, install drywall and insulation and buy general building materials.
