A home, not just a place to live...

We provide Home Support Services for Adults with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities

Maine's intellectual/developmental disability service system has changed a lot over the years from large institutions to the current model of a flexible and dynamic system focused on the individual being fully integrated into their community.

MAC's initial evaluation process ensures that each individual is matched with their best-fit living environment. Prospective residents and their families/guardians meet with our staff to identify the individual's needs and interests. After a pre-visit to tour potentially compatible homes one or more homes are selected for a longer visit. This allows the individual and guardian to 'sample' MAC's home-y environment for a long-term positive experience.

This introduction process may take up to several weeks but we feel that making the individual feel comfortable from the day that they move into one of our facilities is important in building a successful relationship with MAC's staff and the housemates they will live with.
