The programs that are offered by MAMI include the following: Drug Treatment Centers, Housing and Supportive Housing, Family Service Programs, Family Counseling and Supportive Services, Out-of-Home Caregivers, Employment and Training, Job Training and Placement, Substance Abuse Treatment Programs, Family Residential Programs, Public Education, Juvenile Programs, Mental Health and Developmental Services and Youth Services.

There is a program designed for people with developmental disabilities that allows them to live in a supportive environment in the Montgomery County. This program is called “Housing First”. It works to make sure that a family is able to live in their own home and not need the assistance of others. If the family has a need for assistance, they are put on a waiting list until their situation is resolved. The goal of this program is to prevent the development of mental health issues and the need for institutionalization.
