Family Development

Family Development Case Management

Family Development Case Management is a model of service provision developed over several years at MMCA.  Its elements include a focus on the entire family with a flexible definition of  “family.”  The model is strength-based and family-focused and encourages  teamwork between family, agency, and community resources.  It includes an assessment for measuring levels of risk in fifteen life areas and promotes problem-solving skills that identify and eliminate barriers to self-sufficiency.

The Family Development model includes a comprehensive range of activities to assist participating families to achieve self-sufficiency goals through coordinated access to community services and on-going case management support.

MMCA also provides case management services to help seniors live independently in their homes.  Following a survey and assessment of needs, case managers help seniors to identify and access services, build natural supports, and develop resources to maintain independent living and vital participation in their communities.

This service is available to residents of northern Cumberland, Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties.

Camp Walden

The Walden Camp Program enables low-income families to send their daughters (ages 9-11) to a ten-day residential camp near Denmark, Maine. Participants develop a range of interests, build self-esteem, and foster self-determination and autonomy through participating in a variety of camp activities.  MMCA helps with the application process and transportation to and from the camp.
