Getting My Own Address

Getting My Own Address (GMOA) is a program to educate and assist individuals with any disability, their families, and other natural and professional supports to create a successful long term housing plan that can be implemented at a time of choice or need.

Getting My Own Address Guide: How to Order (and preview pages)

Getting My Own Address Guide is available for a nominal fee. Click here to order.

Because the GMOA Program and Guide were made possible by a grant from Autism Society Oakland County, the GMOA Guide is available for Oakland County residents and professionals at a slightly lower cost than for those outside of the county.

Please note: The GMOA Guide is useful for long-term housing planning for people with any disability.   more

Getting My Own Address support groups

Due to funding changes in the Community Mental Health system we are downsizing to one Getting My Own Address support group that will be based at the Troy office of Community Housing Network.

Quell Group's 20 Acts of Kindness to benefit CHN!

Quell benefit  

Double your donation! The Quell Group will generously match your donation to the CHN Furniture Fund Sept. 1-30, up to a total of $800 in donations, as part of their 20 Acts of Kindness Campaign! Help us raise a total of $1,600 in September to help CHN program participants, formerly homeless families and individuals, furnish their new living spaces and create a sense of home.
A donation of $160 could help a family receive a gently-used full mattress with box spring, sofa, dining table, dining chairs, and dresser, with delivery to their home, through our partnership with the Furniture Bank of Southeastern Michigan. Donate here and note the donation is for furniture. More information on the Quell Group's 20 Acts of Kindness is available here.

CHN makes the difference for program participant

Every once in a while a special donation shows up at Community Housing Network. "It's not ever much,” says donor Duane Ott. "But CHN has made all the difference for me living the kind of life I choose to live versus the life of abject poverty. I can't remember how I got along before CHN.”   more
