Who We Are

Promoting Healthy Relationships

History & Mission

In 1969 Mechanicville community members worked together to create the city’s first after-school youth drop-in center that provided a unique safe place for recreation and socializing. The center was so popular that in 1983, the permanent home of what is now the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center (MACSC) opened its doors to the 6,000+ residents of Mechanicville and the surrounding communities.

Today that legacy of neighbors helping neighbors continues by providing programs and services that reach across the lifespan. For 50 years MACSC has built innovative programs and offered services and resources that support and empower our community.

The Mechanicville Area Community Services Center (MACSC) is not only a Community Center, but a true Center for the Community! Our diverse, dedicated, flexible and knowledgeable staff are here to assist and support our Community. Together we can all make a difference.


Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement reflects our commitment to “Improve the lives of area residents through family support, empowerment, recreation and education.” Our goal is to promote healthy relationships between families and the community at large. MACSC is not only a community center, but a true center for the community.
