MESH helps people overcome complex, interrelated barriers of mental health, employment, substance abuse, and housing. It is a partnership of five organizations serving those areas. These founding organizations (CMHA, Prospect, Fresh Start, Aventa, Horizon Housing) began collaborative work towards this initiative in 2012. For clients, these agencies will function as one, in conjunction with peer mentoring, to minimize admin and maximize benefit.
This demonstration project will run from 2014-2017, with funding made possible by United Way. Service starts June 15, 2015. Quarterly updates will be provided to the community to share progress and learnings. We look forward to more partners as the project continues, to better support client need.
