Here’s what MACA members are saying:
"Since joining the Community Action Agency Network over 12 years ago, I have relied on MACA time and time again to provide information, support, training and coordination of events. Through professional alliance meetings I am able to network with my peers to stay informed of new programs and initiatives in our service arena, and the meetings provide a platform to generate ideas for innovative programs."

We share and learn from other community action agencies across the State through association with professional alliances, functional and certified leadership-oriented trainings that support the vision -- moving people out of poverty."
