Mechanicville Area Community Srvs Ctr -
Family Development Resource Program

MACSC staff provide assistance in helping individuals and families access resources within MACSC, and the community, that will help them achieve their self-determined goals. 

The Family Development program is designed for individuals and families who are looking for help in realizing their goals.

 In our program, individuals and families develop a partnership with the Family Development team.  This relationship is based in respect, honesty, and shared-power. 

After critical needs are met, the individual/family & case-worker focus on identifying strengths, addressing obstacles, and working to set n achieve goals. 

The individual/family creates their own vision for the future.  The only-term goals and the smaller steps needed to obtain the individual/family's vision are put in writing. 

Services, education and other resources are used as stepping stones to achieving long-term goals. 

The Family Development approach motivates individuals and families to become pro-active, and helps to prevent crisis from reoccurring, by providing families with tools and guidance that empower them to build on their won strengths and resouces to meet the future challenges of life.
