The Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness (MCAH) has achieved statewide recognition for its advocacy role in support of the Michigan statewide campaign to end homeless. MCAH is also recognized across the state, and nationally, for its implementation of the Michigan Statewide Homeless Management Information System (MSHMIS). I have worked in the human services field, in various capacities, for 36 years and have begun my fifth year as part of the MCAH professional team. I see, on a daily basis, the dedication to informing policy and budget priority decisions, in the advocacy realm, and providing capable MSHMIS support to every county and region in Michigan. Through these efforts, there is much greater awareness of the nature and extent of homelessness in Michigan and local communities are better equipped to help homeless persons acquire stable housing and become productive citizens. I fondly think of our organization as the "A Team."
