MIH Welcomes Director of Housing Ahmna Khan

MIH introduced Ahmna Khan as the organization’s Director of Housing on June 24.

She has extensive clinical experience, having worked with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) as both a behavioral specialist in day program and residential settings, as well as a mental health clinician in private practice. She has trained hundreds of Direct Support Professionals in both residential and day program settings to promote the quality of services for the DD organizations she has worked in.

“I am thrilled to join MIH, where I look forward to collaborating with a team of dedicated professionals to help expand affordable housing opportunities as every person deserves the right to access affordable housing,” said Ahmna.

Ahmna comes to MIH from Montgomery County’s Department of Aging- Health and Human Services, where she served as a Program Administrator for Montgomery County’s new Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Commission.  She supported the commission in looking at local and state legislation and policy that would potentially impact individuals with IDD and their families. Her leadership and commitment in this role were recognized by the County Council during Disability Awareness Month.

During her time at the commission, Ahmna quickly understood how housing was a huge topic of discussion for the members of the IDD community. She has also seen the positive impact of an inclusive community and housing/residential choice for many of her clients’ mental and behavioral health. Ahmna is committed to continuing her advocacy for individuals with IDD and looks forward to expanding and supporting housing teams statewide to continue to promote inclusive and affordable housing opportunities.

“I am delighted to have Ahmna joining our team, her experience and character will greatly enhance our work with Housing Committees around the state,” said MIH Executive Director Tim Wiens.
