MHRP is a private, non-profit corporation, established in 1972 that provides community-based support and rehabilitation services to individuals in the Merrimack Vally who have been disabled by mental illness. Agency programs are designed to empower disabled individuals so they can pursue active, productive, and independent lives. Agency services focus on housing, education, and employment support services and services related to socialization, recreation and use of leisure time.

MHRP is committed to providing decent safe, affordable and permanent housing to agency clients who meet DMH eligibility criteria and who also meet low to moderate income criteria. The agency will continue to work with the Department of Mental Health in the sites in which it has programs, and with other state, federal, or local funding sources, to improve the housing options available to agency clients.
