Director of Technical Assistance and MonitoringMACCH was born out of the collective voice of more than 100 homeless service advocates in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. 

The journey began in 1996 with the Omaha Area Continuum of Care for the Homeless (OACCH). The program, based on HUD's Continuum of Care model, competed for and won more than $10 million in HUD funding for local agencies over the course of 10 years.

In 2006, metro area leaders decided more could be done to address homelessness. More collaboration was needed. Thus, OACCH transformed into an independent 501(c)3 and became MACCH.

In 2007, a report titled "Homelessness in the Omaha/Council Bluffs Metro Area: Assessment of Current Needs/Services and Options for Action" was commissioned and published. This document, known commonly as The Wilder Report, was pivotal in proposing strategies that became essential to MACCH's existence and success. 

MACCH's main objective is to unite the efforts of shelter, housing, supportive services, and faith-based organizations that serve homeless and near-homeless individuals and families in Douglas, Pottawattamie, and Sarpy Counties. In the decade-plus since MACCH's incorporation, the organization has competitively procured nearly $45 million in HUD Continuum of Care funding on behalf of nearly 20 local homeless assistance projects.

Today, diverse organizations, service providers, advocates, and governmental representatives participate in MACCH. And MACCH continues to grow and experience success. 

Housed at the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center (CEC) of the University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO), MACCH's community presence and public engagement is stronger and more effective than ever.
