Hamilton Crossing

Bob Eccles

Ypsilanti's Hamilton Crossing housing area has come a long way since the days when it sat run down and nearly empty, a magnet for crime with boarded up windows.  Both Hamilton Crossing and its residents are doing much better now.

Tax credits helped pay for renovations at the property, and the Family Empowerment Program has been helping residents improve their lives.
