MACAC provides an array of programs and services to the community and promotes collaborative efforts with entities that are vital to the community. Our vision is to strengthen fundamental family values to keep families functioning in a healthy and empowered manner. We believe that by removing traditional barriers, families, and ultimately communities, will be strengthened. The specific mission of MACAC is to improve the quality of life of families throughout the East End and Greater Pittsburgh Communities by: 1. Empowering individuals and families to become productively independent; 2. Fostering conditions that assure economic stability of individuals and families; and, 3. Providing programs that support and encourage functional family values.
In 1990, the Mount Ararat Community Activity Center, Inc. (MACAC) was formally established as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. MACAC is dedicated to helping East End individuals and families through outreach. The Center has a governing board which includes an executive director and a balanced representation of service, community and church interests.
MACAC focuses on the family as a comprehensive unit and has an ideology that this can promote essential changes in the conditions that limit the quality of life for those we serve. MACAC focuses on prevention and intervention in problematic issues, primarily through its outreach to underserved youth, as a means of breaking the cycle of disadvantage.
