MAAC is COA Accredited


The Multi-Agency Alliance for Children (MAAC) is pleased to announce the launch of the Permanency focused, Action oriented, Collaboration, Team-based, PACT Program. MAAC literally makes a pact with youth and families to do the best work we can. The program is designed to work with youth to improve their success and sustainability in a community environment. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that each youth has a voice in their plan, has strong and consistent advocacy, is closer to accomplishing their goals and is stable and safe in a community setting.


MAAC’s PACT Program is a practice model originating from the success and outcomes of a recent Pilot Project that included several program entities within MAAC. The purpose of the Pilot was to create a successful blend of services and supports for children in child welfare with an integrated approach. The goal was to utilize evidenced based research and practice that we found to be strictly compatible for MAAC’s culture.

The PACT Program will explore ways to infuse key ingredients which aide to youth and family success by primarily focusing on the following:

 Improving relationships amongst youth, families, community providers and DFCS Partners

 Decreasing stays in higher level placements

 Effectively moving youth to permanent living arrangements

 Increasing sustainable connections.

MAAC is committed to strengthening its current practices to better serve youth and families and improve relationships

with collaborating agencies and various systems of care.


Starting May 2016 referrals to the PACT program are accepted for youth:

 In DFCS custody who are at risk of having a placement disruption and/or youth who has had multiple placements within the past 12 months

 Who are in Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) Assessment Beds and DO NOT meet Medical Necessity for PRTF Stay

 Who are about to step down from a PRTF, who are in need of placement and/or additional resources to support placement stability

 Who are in Crisis Stabilization Unit’s (CSU’s) who do not qualify for a PRTF and can be safely served in the community

 Who are placed in a Maximum Watchful Oversight Program (MWO) whose stay has extended longer than 12 months or youth who are about to step down from a MWO who are in need of placement and/or additional resources to support placement stability


MAAC welcomes calls and emails regarding how to best navigate this process. To learn more, please call 404.880.9323 or contact the program administrator: Erica Davis-Woods at
