Relationship with AMHA

Community Support Services maintains an excellent partnership with AMHA (Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority). Assistance is provided to clients to apply for housing through the senior,family development, or Housing Choice Voucher program at AMHA. The agency can assist with the application process as needed.

If an appeal is needed, the agency has a liaison with AMHA to assist in navigating the appeal process for persons denied services due to disqualification from programs and assistance in obtaining accommodations for disability-related housing.

With an appropriate release of information, the housing programs under AMHA are able to reach out to the agency’s case management staff for assistance when a resident may be having difficulties with his or her mental illness as well as the cleanliness of his or her apartment.
