Mission Statement

MAC's mission is to be an independent and effective voice for children who face significant barriers to equal educational and life opportunities. MAC works to overcome these barriers by changing conditions for many children, while also helping one child at a time.

Description

MAC's vision is that all children in the Commonwealth, especially the most vulnerable,have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Central to this vision is that all children receive the high quality education to which they are entitled and which will enable them to succeed.

MAC uses a broad range of strategies to get results and change the conditions that limit children's opportunities. These strategies include building coalitions, helping empower parents and community leaders, providing technical assistance and training, conducting case advocacy, advocating at the administrative and legislative levels, writing reports and, when necessary, litigating.

MAC acts to hold public institutions accountable and prioritizes systems change in order to have the greatest impact affecting the most children. But through its intake, case advocacy and trainings, MAC also works to assure that the needs of individual children are met.
