Main Street Housing was delighted to host visitors from Hafal (meaning “equal”), the leading charity for people with serious mental illness and their carers in Wales, U.K.
Alison Guyatt and Helen Bennett toured two of MSH’s properties in Baltimore City and met with our staff to learn about the Main Street Model of quality, affordable, independent housing for consumers. We wish Helen and Allison the best of luck on their fact-finding tour across the US as they learn and bring back innovative strategies to help them develop the Gellinudd Recovery Centre, which will offer “ambitious, recovery-focused support and treatment for people with a serious mental illness.”
MSH Executive Director Kenneth Wireman was invited to present on our nationally recognized, award-winning “Main Street Model” to a group of national leaders from Israel’s mental health and disability sectors during their visit to Maryland hosted by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. The delegates also toured one of MSH’s Baltimore City properties, meeting Tenants and learning how maintaining a quality, affordable home in the community is essential to long-term recovery and reintegration.
