Creekside Court is a brand new voucher-based housing community funded by the Ann Arbor Housing Commission. Scheduled to open in Winter 2020, this neighborhood will house 32 families. Creekside Court is off of Platt Road, near Mitchell Elementary and Scarlett Middle School, between Packard and Ellsworth.

Because of CAN's success operating community centers in other public housing & low-income neighborhoods, we have been invited to operate the community center within this new community, partnering with residents to build a safe and supportive environment from the very beginning. 

Programs & services will start on a rollout basis with COVID-19 in mind as families move in and get settled.
