Transforming the System

MHSA’s advocacy and innovative program development are focused on transforming the traditional emergency response to homelessness to a system that focuses on long-term solutions. Rather than leaving people to live in shelters or on the streets for months or even years, we need an effective system that prioritizes quickly moving people back into housing with access to the appropriate support services. Critical components of this new system would include triage and assessment, short-term shelter, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing.
