Advocating for Change

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.
