Housing Bureau for Seniors (HBS)

The Housing Bureau for Seniors works throughout Washtenaw County to enable and assist older adults with seeking and maintaining appropriate and affordable living arrangements.

The HBS is a place where people, 55 and older, can find answers to questions about housing and care options. We provide community support for seniors and caregivers seeking advice or information on planning ahead, making transitions or handling a crisis. We can put you in touch with a comprehensive network of programs and services so that you can obtain the help you need.

Services provided:

  • Give seniors, caregivers and family members support and access to the resources they need.
  • Help to prevent homelessness among seniors who live in rental properties through our Elderly Eviction Prevention program.
  • Provide one-on-one assistance to more than 1,000 individuals annually, and reach countless others through community events, open houses, exhibits, educational programs and other outreach efforts.
  • Help find ways for seniors to stay in their homes with programs like HomeShare.
  • Offer decision making tools to assess options such as staying in your home or moving to a senior setting with or without care through our Housing Counseling program.
  • Look at the total financial and personal situation to prevent homelessness through our Foreclosure Prevention program.
