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.
