Main Street Housing, Inc. was recognized with an Certificate of Appreciation from Mid-Shore Mental Health Services, Inc. at their 2015 Caliber Awards, which recognize excellence in public behavioral health.
Nearly eight years ago, MSH crossed the Bay Bridge to bring our “Main Street Model” of consumer-run, independent affordable rental housing for individuals and families with psychiatric disabilities to the Eastern Shore. In June 2007, MSH began operations on the Eastern Shore by taking on 5 properties from Shore Alliance for Independent Living, which allowed many consumers to stay in their homes. Since then, MSH has more than doubled our properties through two additional housing development initiatives thanks to the support of many individuals and agencies in the Mid-Shore region. As of March 2015 we own and operate 17 rental housing units across 5 Mid-Shore Counties with the capacity to serve 37 people.
MSH offers consumers a choice in affordable housing beyond traditional service-based programs and sets a standard of excellence for housing that truly fosters recovery. Our affordable monthly rent amounts are designed to fit the needs of individuals and families living on limited or disability income, and our rigorous property selection criteria ensure Tenants have independent access to the opportunities for employment, education, recreation and health services that support and sustain wellness.
