My Happy Place Application

    Eligible homes are within 30 miles of Mason City, Iowa, Des Moines, Iowa, Fort Collins, Colorado, and 35 miles of Watertown, South Dakota
    If no, you must submit written permission from your landlord to proceed with the bedroom makeover.
    ***This may affect our decision in regard to your application. ***While not necessary, a photo of your child would be appreciated.
  • IMPORTANT: You may be asked to submit a Healthcare Professional Form, verifying your child's diagnosis. While we know this can hold up an application, we must have one on file before any work is done on the room (if this form is required by the MHP Affiliate). You may submit the actual application asap, but if application is accepted, this form must be completed by the child's healthcare team before any work is done on the room. You may print off this form to take to your child's healthcare provider to have them sign and mailing it to the MHP Affiliate's address or direct the healthcare provider to: http://myhappyplacemc.com/healthcare-professional-form/
