“MHA is thrilled to receive this very generous donation from HUB International New England, and doubly thrilled to have their commitment again for 2020,” said Kimberley A. Lee, VP Resource Development & Branding for MHA. “HUB International New England is a long-time partner and friend of MHA and this sizeable commitment demonstrates their desire and willingness to share in the important work we do. We extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to Timm Marini and the entire team at HUB International New England on behalf of all the people that MHA serves.”

Starting in the 1960s, MHA’s groundbreaking efforts and advocacy helped to transition people away from institutional living to a life in our community.

We drive compassionate care for those challenged by mental health, developmental disabilities, substance use, homelessness, acquired brain injury and more.
