Helping Low-Income Individuals
We work tirelessly to help make sure that the basic needs of low-income individuals and families are being met. We provide food, home energy, as well as a wide range of free and low-cost services in order to aid them in their journey to becoming self-sufficient.
Assistance with Heating Costs
Through our state-funded Home Energy Assistance program, we work actively to provide assistance with energy and heating bills to elderly, handicapped, and low-income individuals. This assistance also includes emergency intervention, in which we work with the energy or heating company to make sure the energy crisis is resolved within 48 hours.
Providing Access To Low-Cost Immigration Services
Our expert immigration attorneys work tirelessly every day to help low-income immigrants achieve their goals of becoming legalized and ultimately citizens of this country. Through our low-cost immigration services, they have access to high-quality legal representation from accredited attorneys that work with them and guide them through their entire process.
Being a single mom MCOHA has helped me a lot, especially around the cold months when I need oil and I just didn't have the money for it. I always knew that I could go to MCOHA and they would help me."

Access To Critical Social Services
In order to make sure the basic needs of Low-Income individuals and families are being met, MCOHA provides them with access to free critical social services. These services include referral services for housing and food assistance, eye and physical screenings, seasonal food and goods donations, transportation services, among many others. We are committed to making sure no one is left behind.
Advocating for Educational Opportunities
Income inequality can have a real and tangible impact on education levels. That is why MCOHA is working on the front lines to help minimize that gap. Throughout the years, we have provided different informational and educational initiatives. Within our programs, right now we are providing citizenship classes, community forums, children tutoring and higher education advocacy for young adults.
