We help kids by listening to what they need, from their point of view, while also listening to the adults in their life. We care about each of them. Our passion for the children in our care colors absolutely everything we do.
MAAC, the Multi-Agency Alliance For Children,is a collaborative partnership between private providers… the following are our nine member agencies. We also contract with twenty other agencies throughout the state.

Monday, November 30, 2015 was a historical day in the life of MAAC. After years of planning, strategizing and looking at multiple models, our governance structure shifted. The Board officially became a community member governance board, expanded from a provider only board. For many that may seem like a small step, but it was one of the most significant days in MAAC’s 20 year history and fundamental to its future.
