Danielle Ferrier Joins MHSA Member Advisory Board

Heading Home CEO Danielle Ferrier is honored to join the MHSA (Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance) Member Advisory Board as an inaugural member to advise MHSA on advocacy, policy issues, and emerging trends and practices in addressing homelessness.

“I am so excited that Danielle Ferrier of Heading Home was selected to join our Advisory Board, not just because of Heading Home’s premier role as a source of best practices regarding supportive housing, but also because Danielle and I have worked together over the years, even prior to her coming to Heading Home, on so many critical issues from transitional age youth to lack of appropriate resources for those persons being housed who also have serious clinical issues. I appreciate not only her clinical background but also her critical thinking and her willingness never to be afraid to speak the truth, even when it might be sometimes difficult to hear. It is why over many years I have often sought her counsel. What better person could you have advising our organization?” 

Joe Finn, Executive Director of MHSA

This new Member Advisory Board will “raise up the many economic, social, housing, and human services issues contributing to homelessness and speak to the necessary solutions. They will play a critical part in moving forward MHSA’s advocacy agenda,” said Finn.

Danielle is honored to join the following nonprofit leaders as inaugural members of the MHSA Member Advisory Board:
