In order to live more successfully in an integrated community, some individuals with a disability find they need the support of their family and friends, or what is called natural supports. However, some individuals have limited natural supports and may need to link within the community to find support, or what is called supplemental support. MCCMH serves as a bridge to close the support gap for those who have limited natural supports, or would like additional support outside of their family and friends.
The services and support provided by MCCMH allow the person to become a part of the community. The goal of MCCMH is to provide an array of quality services, which promotes community participation, self sufficiency, and independence.
MCCMH serves Macomb County residents, and is the manager of the public mental health services and supports in Macomb County, including substance abuse treatment. The qualifications for services are:

Planning Your Services
MCCMH goal is to provide an array of quality services, which promotes community participation, self sufficiency, and independence for each person and/or family that participates with CMH.
The process used to create and provide specific services to the individual and/or family is called Person Centered Planning (PCP). PCP is based on the person’s Dreams, Goals, Desires, and Strengths. PCP builds on both the individual’s current goals and future dreams, which will build on the ability of the person to be a part of the community
Children receiving MCCMH services are also entitled to be a part of their planning process based on the child’s interest and ability. The planning process often involves the entire family and/or guardian(s). Because planning often involves the family/guardian(s), this is called Family Centered Planning, which will involve goals for the child and hopes and needs for the entire family.
In addition to PCP and Family Centered Planning,Self-Determinationis a model used service delivery that allows the person receiving mental health or developmental disability services to direct the purchase of your approved services using a fixed amount of Medicaid dollars. The person’s Individual Budget or the funds that are available are based on the person’s PCP. Upon qualifying for services, the ACCESS Center will provide detailed information on how to implement Self-Determination.

COMMUNITY HOUSING NETWORK (CHN)
History: CHN began operations in 2001 when a staff of three embarked upon a local initiative to create and manage housing resources for people with disabilities. As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, CHN contracted with Macomb County Community Mental Health Authority to address the housing needs of persons with disabilities. Three areas were discussed:
- To address the escalating cost of group home leases and to provide property management for nearly 180 licensed group homes.
- To create alternatives to group homes by generating and managing various assets. CHN has begun to reconfigure existing leasing arrangements with for-profit property owners, and has begun to address the issue of runaway rents and lost equity. The organization has purchased some group homes, in part by obtaining assistance from the Federal Home Loan Bank Indianapolis and plans to continue acquiring properties to build critical equity.
- A central point where people can obtain information about affordable housing and available resources. The result was the Housing Resource Center (HRC).
Community Housing Network works in collaboration with Macomb County Community Mental Health to provide supported housing and a Housing Resource Center to members of MCCMH consumers. CHN links with all service providers within MCCMH by seeking and creating safe and affordable housing opportunities and information.
CHN works in partnership with support coordinators, agencies, and circle of supports to develop individualized, creative solutions to the housing needs of consumers. We believe that people with disabilities will:
- Attain safe, decent, affordable housing of their choice.
- Have control of which the person lives with, if anyone, including other people with disabilities and/or people who do not experience a disability.
- Housing choices are separate from the attainment of other supports or services.
CHN facilitates the utilization of local, state, federal and private resources to promote sustainable, affordable housing opportunities in Macomb County.
