The mission is to strengthen the social service community through information systems, training, and advocacy. A shared database is provided and maintained for the benefit of more than 300 social service sites that provide direct services to low income and homeless clients and families. The database tracks client services, uses of funds, and case goals.
Maintained a computer database consisting of client service records to enable more than 300 agency sites to track and share client information. The sharing of data avoids duplication of services, optimizes limited resources, and provides statistical information for agency management, funders, governments, and public policy makers. More than 300 agency sites participated by entering data regarding client services and case management. The database also served as the hud mandated hmis (homeless management information system) for continuums of care located in the kansas city metropolitan area, the state of kansas, st. Joseph, missouri, topeka, kansas, and charleston, west virginia.
administered seven utility assistance funds, and eight emergency assistance funds using the database described above. Administration of funds included managing bank accounts; allocating contributed funds to some sixty participating agencies; monitoring data entry for accuracy and completeness; enforcing eligibility guidelines; serving as liaison between utility companies, agencies, and clients; and paying bills on behalf of eligible clients.
provided training, education, and information services to emergency assistance agencies, specializing in strengths based case management techniques. During the fiscal year, maac held a special one-day training conference attended by 142 case managers and client intake workers. In addition, 110 social service workers and case managers were trained at 11 separate training sessions.
the organization accounts separately for costs associated with a community outreach program. Expenses for this program consist mainly of participation in low income assistance planning groups such as the committee to keep missourians warm, the national fuel funds network, and the low income utility network of kansas.
