Housing

MAMH serves on the Commonwealth’s Olmstead Advisory Committee. We also work with the Association for Behavioral Health (ABH), the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance (MHSA) and other partners to promote housing equality, access, and supportive housing options and continue to highlight the data in the People Are Waiting 2018 report, which documents and quantifies the number of Department of Mental Health (DMH) clients waiting for housing. We also work with state and federal agencies, including the Department of Housing and Community Development on housing subsidies, MassHousing on set asides and care coordination, and DMH on Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) and Housing First Models.
