About MAAC:

MAAC Project is a multi-purpose social service agency with a successful 45-year history of serving various communities throughout San Diego County. In 1965, MAAC Project opened its doors to serve San Diego's disadvantaged and now has centers strategically located as far south as San Ysidro and as far north as Camp Pendleton. One million clients later, MAAC is still acting as a catalyst to help individuals and families become self-sufficient.

Serving approximately 35,000 individuals per year, MAAC provides a spectrum of unique programs designed to assist clients by engaging them in the enhancement of their own lives through lifestyle changes. The programs strive to improve clients’ economic standing as well as their ability to access resources available to them. Included among the many programs and services now offered are Head Start/First Start, two culturally specific recovery homes: Casa De Milagros and Nosotros, award-winning affordable housing complexes, community  and workforce development programs, and a community charter school. MAAC’s commitment to environmental sustainability carries the non-profit into the future with its low-income home weatherization and green jobs training programs.  For more information, visit www.maacproject.org .

MAAC's History  

In 1965, MAAC Project opened its doors to serve San Diego's disadvantaged. One million clients later, MAAC is still acting as a catalyst to help individuals and families become self-sufficient. MAAC provides a spectrum of unique programs designed to assist clients by engaging them in the enhancement of their own lives through lifestyle changes. The programs strive to improve clients’ economic standing as well as their ability to access resources available to them.

MAAC has become one of San Diego's most distinguished and comprehensive social service agencies. MAAC serves San Diego County families through HeadStart/FirstStart, nutritional programs, low- income home weatherization and improvement, two notable and culturally specific recovery homes, award winning affordable housing complexes and a charter school.

The availability of secure and attractive homes and the development of a community, which provides access to childcare, pre-school, recreational activities, computer training, job referrals, and services designed to enhance the livability and viability of the neighborhood, builds pride and self-respect. In turn, this leads to self-development, respect for others, and citizenship participation. These are MAAC goals. This is the path and direction on which MAAC is embarked.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the MAAC Project is to promote self-sufficiency for low and moderate income families and communities of Southern California through advocacy for, and delivery of, social, educational, housing and employment services.

MAAC will pursue our mission by offering the various communities in San Diego County a helping hand, by bridging the path to self- sufficiency, and by building and enhancing self-esteem.
