MAAC is a dynamic nonprofit organization offering a wide range of services to individuals and families of San Diego County. MAAC was founded upon a vision to provide a place where local families in need could find the means to self-sufficiency. Together, members from the San Diego Chapter of the GI Forum, Hermandad Mexicana, Laborer’s Local #89, Association of Mexican-American Educators, and the Council of Latin American Clubs, along with other leaders of San Diego’s Mexican American community turned their vision into reality and founded the Metropolitan Area Advisory Committee on Anti-Poverty. Today, hunger and poverty continue to be crises in our communities. Demands of daily life and unexpected events can easily push families below the poverty level. And our nation’s current economic crisis has deeply affected even more families, creating a new face of poverty in our communities. For generations, MAAC has responded to these challenges by evolving its programs to meet the needs of the community. Our work is made possible by a number of factors: a strong commitment to those whom we serve, dedicated staff, compassionate volunteers, the creativity to deliver services matching needs in times of scarce resources, and donors who recognize the essential value of MAAC’s service to our community.

Reminder, next Tuesday, May 24th: Join MAAC along with San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association and our partner community organizations for the 2016 City Attorney Forum on May 24th at University of San Diego University Forums Halls at 6:30 PM. The debate will be moderated by NBC 7 San Diego anchor Catherine Garcia and will focus on a range of issues affecting the Latino community and communities of color throughout the city of San Diego. Many San Diego residents are not fully aware of how the City Attorney's decisions directly affect their daily lives. This forum seeks to illuminate the City Attorney's impact on residents' lives and their communities by elucidating the important role played by the City Attorney. In doing so, we hope to empower voters so they are better equipped to make an informed decision this June at the ballot box. Join us for this FREE event!

JOIN US TONIGHT!!! “The suspension of the CAHSEE will have a significant impact on our student population, particularly those that are English language learners. Just in the 2014‐15 student body, over 40 students will now receive a high school diploma. The number grows to hundreds when we look as far back as 2005‐06. That is definitely cause for celebration." -Debbie VanEnkevort, MCCS Director Below are the two links to the article and longitudinal study in regard to the CAHSEE test and its effects on students.: http://edsource.org/2015/uncertain-impact-of-californias-high-school-exit-exam/85387 http://edpolicyinca.org/sites/default/files/PB.09-3.pdf
