Why MACH and Why Now?
Welcome to the new Midlands Area Consortium for the Homeless (MACH) website!
Whether you are looking for services, support individuals experiencing homelessness as an advocate, or are a provider in the 13 counties MACH serves, we have designed a website that will allow you to easily find the information and resources you are seeking. We invite you to take a few minutes to click around and get to know our new and improved platform.
Chances are, if you do not have an interest in ending homelessness, you wouldn't have visited our site today. In times of uncertain funding and policy directions at the federal level, combined with an already overloaded systems of care, its more important than ever we come together to deepen our partnerships, explore innovative collaborations, and never forget our common mission of helping people - who have often been overlooked or forgotten - find stable housing and regain their lives.
We ask that you join MACH in this quest to end homelessness rather than managing it. Improve broken systems instead of creating and recreating endless workarounds. And remember only through the grace of God that each of us are not the one seeking help in our most vulnerable time.
We need you and here's how to help today… Join MACH!
