- Insure children with mental illness currently residing in, or at risk of, out of home placements, have the opportunity to live in more integrated settings with appropriate community supports
- Insure that adults with mental illness who are homeless, in institutions, or in the community, receive appropriate and adequate mental health treatment in the least restrictive environment
- Insure that the Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO) implements the voucher set-aside program for people with disabilities
- Advocate for a set-aside of CBDG funds for accessibility modifications to Section 8 supported apartments through meetings and negotiations with HANO and the City of New Orleans
