M.I.S.S.I.O.N. A2 is a not for profit partnership between homeless and “homeful” Washtenaw County residents collaborating to support self governing tent communities in Michigan during the ongoing housing and employment crises.  The organization works to provide a voice to the homeless, and to make tent communities safer and better connected to services so that their citizens can more quickly make their way into more permanent housing, if that is what they want for themselves.  Learn more here.
