Several members of the Washtenaw County Bar Association turned out for the June 16 WCBA Public Service/Pro Bono Committee's flowerbed weeding and planting in support of Avalon Housing’s Gardening with Grace program. Avalon Housing provides permanent affordable and supportive rental housing for Washtenaw County’s lowest income households, with a priority for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who have a mental or physical disability.
