MICHIGAN COALITION AGAINST HOMELESSNESS Overview
The Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness (MCAH) is a statewide association consisting of housing, shelter, and service providers to the homeless as well as concerned citizens. It provides information, data, training, best practices, and advocacy on issues pertaining to affordable housing and human services. Incorporated in 1991, MCAH is a 501 (c ) (3) organization.
MCAH pursues public awareness, advocacy, collaboration, data collection, and technical assistance to help reframe the way homelessness is perceived, and what and how services are provided to effectively address the issue.
MCAH’s mission is to decrease the incidence of homelessness, improve the quality of services provided to people who are homeless, and effect systemic change relating to the root causes of homelessness.
Success is be measured through utilization of the standardized data form that each event participant must complete when they enter homelessness assistance and prevention events. Through the use of this form, Continuums of Care (CoCs) are able to track the services that attendees access via the events. Corresponding follow-ups and referrals can also be tracked, when needed, to determine the level of continued progress/success.
