In order to achieve this mission, the MCHCCN will:
•Include in its membership agencies, governmental entities, organizations, foundations, funding groups and others that will support and cooperate with each other working as a community to eradicate homelessness.
•Advocate for the homeless and those at risk of homelessness.
•Survey and analyze the needs of the homeless in Muskegon County in order to better identify and serve this population.
•Expand and coordinate available resources locally and through State and Federal sources.
•Identify and support housing solutions (shelters, transitional housing, permanent housing, supportive housing, and available existing private housing) as a key component in the eradication of the homeless.
•The MCHCCN does not favor one membership over another and is a system which captures the needs and perspectives of all of its members in order to identify the gaps to preventing and ending homelessness in our community. MCHCCN operates in accordance with its By-Laws and the standards developed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Michigan State Housing and Development Authority (MSHDA)
