Mobile Access Partnership (MAP)

Mobile Access Partnership (MAP) of Topeka is a collaborative approach to providing mobile access to medical, social, and behavioral health services for Topeka's unsheltered homeless population, as well as those whose housing situation is precarious. MAP expands the work that partnering agencies are doing to give at-risk adults and families a hand-up as they seek to move forward. 

MAP is a division of Compassion Strategies Inc. a 501(c)3 not-for-profit.
