MAP works to ensure that homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring.
MAP receives referrals from Housing Access of Washtenaw County for our housing programs. But you must be in touch with HAWC first before we can help.
If you are experiencing a housing crisis, please call:
MAP Housing Support staff work with participants in all MAP housing programs. They meet regularly with participants to emphasize daily living skills, increasing self-sufficiency and independence. MAP staff addresses barriers to stable housing such as chemical dependency, ex-offender status, mental health issues, or physical disability.
Permanent Supportive Housing
MAP maintains housing stability for the chronically homeless by offering subsidized rent and long-term case management services. MAP owns and operates seven properties, and continues to develop affordable housing. Participants eligible for this program are homeless, low-income, and have a documented disability.
97% of MAP PSH participants remain stably housed.
Rapid Re-Housing helps individuals experiencing homelessness quickly locate and obtain housing, and provides short-term rental assistance. Participants receive case management services to help them stabilize in their new home. MAP creates strong relationships with local landlords who work with us to serve those with housing barriers. Our SSVF and Key for Vets programs follow a ‘Housing First’ model, which recognizes that all participants needs can be addressed best when their housing is stabilized first.
Rapid Re-Housing ends homelessness.
Supportive Services for Veteran Families
To procure and retain housing for homeless Veterans, MAP provides:
• Affordable housing help through payment of application fees,
security deposits and move-in costs
• Short-term rental subsidy
• Access to job training and placement services
Through temporary financial assistance and other supportive services, this program helps individual Veterans and Veterans with families find stability in their new housing and self-sufficiency as they work towards financial independence. Funded through the Veteran’s Administration, this program was dramatically strengthened in 2018 by support from KeyBank, providing $300,000 over 3 years to house those who have served our country. MAP is now able to serve 130 Veterans each year.
1 in 4 homeless men have served in our armed forces.
