“Working with MiCC has been a tremendous opportunity to support client goals, and enhance outcomes for clients and the community. We have been able to connect and collectively house many individuals who were homeless, or in uninhabitable housing conditions." - Jessica Howell, Hickory Way Support Coordinator
