At MHSA, we believe everyone has a fundamental right to housing. That’s why we collaborate and coordinate with state agencies, community-based organizations, policymakers, foundations and donors to help the most vulnerable members of our communities. By working with partners that provide housing, shelter, health care and other services for people experiencing homelessness, MHSA truly transforms the way Massachusetts addresses homelessness.
