Our Mission

The Technical Assistance Collaborative is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping our nation’s human services, health care, homelessness, and affordable housing systems implement policies and practices that empower people to live healthy, independent lives in the communities they choose.

A national nonprofit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts, TAC advances proven solutions to the housing and community support services needs of low-income people with disabilities and people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. For over 25 years, TAC's experienced consultants have provided policy leadership, technical assistance, and expert consultation to federal, state, and local government agencies, policymakers, advocates, foundations, and service providers.

TAC's collaborative consulting model employs multidisciplinary teams of experts with public and nonprofit sector experience in administering and providing services for people involved in mental health, substance use, developmental disabilities, child welfare, juvenile justice, homeless, and affordable housing systems. Led by nationally recognized experts, many of whom have served as senior government officials, the TAC team also draws on a strong network of affiliates and strategic partners who share our mission.
