The Y is a mission-driven charitable organization in central Maryland that is devoted to helping individuals reach their full potential. At MMHA, we are committed to giving back to the communities we serve. We have partnered with several non-profit organizations in central Maryland to combat homelessness and improve the communities where MMHA members work and live. The Maryland Multi-Housing Association Extension Committee is dedicated to creating meaningful relationships with committee volunteers, member companies, and non-profit organizations to maximize the impact of the committee's projects within the local community.
The Maryland Benefit Center, in collaboration with the Maryland Department of Human Services (MDHS), assists eligible Maryland residents in accessing assistance programs such as food, energy, health care and more. The Strategic Program for the Prevention of Specific Evictions (STEP) was initially tested in Baltimore County and is now being implemented throughout Central Maryland. This program identifies zip codes as “hot spots” and facilitates payments to housing providers, which ultimately benefits residents. United Way of Central Maryland and the MMHA work together to identify housing providers in zip codes and establish connections that facilitate payment.Joining a central Maryland residents organization has many advantages.
Members can take advantage of the STEP Program, which helps them access assistance programs such as food, energy, health care and more. Additionally, members can benefit from the relationships established between MMHA and non-profit organizations, which help combat homelessness and improve the communities where MMHA members work and live. Finally, members can take part in meaningful relationships with committee volunteers and member companies that help maximize the impact of the committee's projects within the local community.
