Alvina Hamilton-Bursey

Youth Achieving Sustainable and Success Housing Program
Detroit, MI
My name is Alvina M. H. Bursey (Allie), I am a native Detroiter. Providing people with community resources is a true passion and one of the great things of having been involved in community grassroots organizing. Additionally, I am an entrepreneur working on the development of my organization, Youth Achieving Sustainability & Success (Y.A.S.S.) Housing Program, a transitional living program providing housing and supportive services to LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ youth and young adults who are "literally" homeless as well as aging/aged out of foster care between the ages of 16-24.

People can talk to me about absolutely everything as I stated I am always advocating for my communities and accessing "individual" needs, so I am receptive to all dialogues. I take full advantage of every opportunity as it is a teaching moment and a lesson in every exchange.
