Our Important Advocacy Work

In today’s world of complex regulations and requirements, decision-makers are often called on to enact policy that impact the homeless population, often with limited knowledge of our work and our clients. MCAH works to overcome that knowledge gap through our Legislative Action Committee, engagement with decision makers, and public awareness events.

Our Important Training Work

In 2022,  we trained almost 3000 people, an increase of 20% from 2021.  Topics vary and are curated from you, the housing and homeless advocactes in the field.
