MAC was organized in 1992 by twelve mothers to

assist in improving our community values, children’s education possibilities, and to increase the safety

factor by putting an end to all of the senseless crimes.

Each year, MAC gives scholarships to a few financially deserving students, hosts an annual Christmas party

for children and youth, hosts a back to school event, and sponsors and supports many other programs throughout the year to assist at risk and needy

families.

Chair: Catreshia Brundage

Phone: (478) 414-2023

The Putnam County LIPT exists to improve and facilitate the coordination of services to children with severe emotional disorders, addictive disease or severe unruly/delinquent tendencies.  The team is made up of service providers from around the county and region.  Together, the team works with the parents and youth to determine what services are ideal for the youth.  Typically, for a youth to be staffed by LIPT, a referral must be made.  Referrals are typically made through the student’s school, the Division of Family and Child Services, the Department of Juvenile Justice, or by contacting the chairperson.
