MAAC has been approaching child welfare and behavioral healthcare with an innovative, custom-tailored approach for nearly 20 years.
In 1996, several private non-profit agency directors gathered together to create what ultimately became the MAAC collaborative. These directors were driven to create "a new way of doing business" in the field of behavioral healthcare. Their vision was to create a seamless continuum of care to address all of the needs of the child, adolescent and family while reducing treatment "failures" and uncoordinated multiple placements.
By teaming together to create a continuum of collaborative care, each MAAC member-agency maintains their individuality and expertise in the service areas they uniquely provide. This team approach eliminates the duplication of services across multiple agencies, reducing the risk of becoming "spread too thin.”
Today, the services offered by MAAC's member agencies range from assessments to intensive psychiatric care, adoptions to residential group homes, therapeutic foster care to maternity care and much more. MAAC also has MOUs with nine other providers throughout the state of Georgia.
